This dataset was last updated on LRIS Portal on 31 Aug 2020.

NOTE: There has been a change in the way the S-map is being made available to users. The S-map primary map layer of soil classes (i.e. delineated areas that are labelled with the soil family name) is no longer freely available to commercial users. Access to this data and associated soil attribute data for commercial use is by negotiation - contact Graeme Anderson (andersong@landcareresearch.co.nz).

ACCESS to publically available S-map data is now at

S-map Soil Depth

S-map Soil Drainage

S-map Soil Texture

S-map NZ SOil Classification

S-map's primary map layer is soil classes, i.e. delineated areas that are labelled with the soil family name. Each soil family is defined as a unique combination of attributes (NZSC classification, parent material, rock type, dominant texture and permeability class). Soil classes are further characterised as siblings according to their depth to rock class, stoniness, land type, drainage, texture (more detailed), functional horizons and miscellaneous variant information. The uncertainty of each of these family and sibling attribute classes is specified. Associated with the soil class layer will be additional map layers of fundamental and derived soil properties. The fundamental soil properties are depth (diggability), depth to slowly permeable layer, rooting depth, rooting barrier, horizon thickness, stoniness, clay and sand content. They are developed from sample information and expert knowledge. The derived soil layers are each based on a model (or pedo-transfer function). Some models are simple lookup tables that depend only on the soil class. Others combine various soil, land use, vegetation, climate or topographic attributes in a mathematical formula. Derived layers will include available water (mm), macroporosity, water retention, bulk density, total carbon, total nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, cation exchange capacity, pH, and phosphorus retention.

Soil Map of part of Wallace County

07 Apr 2015

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 07 Apr 2015.

The soil inventory survey of Wallace County, Southland was mapped at 1:50,000 scale and covers approximately 700,000 hectares of a total of 965,600 hectares. Within 6 physiographic regions, soils have been separated by differences in morphology, drainage and parent materials into 132 soil mapping units. Soils have been correlated to South Island soil sets and classification of soils for land use are provided in the attribute table.

This 1986 soil survey has been superceded in lowland areas by Topoclimate South (1998-2001) and S-map (2014) data.

This data set (LCDB v3.3 Change) is a mask of non temporal changes made between LCDB v3.3 and the previous version (LCDB v3.0) and temporal change between the 2001 and 2008 timesteps. The non-temporal changes include errors in the earlier mappings and linework refinement, including reversal of over-smoothed hand-drawn linework in v3.0. Errors were identified from; a review of low producing grassland in the South Island, updates from MfE's Kyoto Land Use maps, checks of the dating of v3.0 mapped change, and feedback from users. An “EditDate” and “Authority” attribute are available in this layer indicating the date and source of the change for both non-temporal and temporal changes mapped. The Authority attribute indicates who (or who's dataset) identified the change. Note, where minor line-work improvements were applied using automated processes, the EditDate and Authorify have not been changed (but the “NonTemporal” attribute is still set true). This layer was produced with a tolerance of 50cm as a zero tolerance generates slivers too small for the portal software to project correctly. Funding is from the Ministry for Science and Innovation under contract CO9X1101, which was contributed to by the Ministry for the Environment. The Department of Conservation and individual regional councils and territorial authorities have made significant in kind contributions by checking the draft mapping for their areas of interest.

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 21 Jun 2013.

A downloadable TIFF image of the 1:15,000 scale SB222 soil map - Soils of the Bannockburn Valley, South Island, New Zealand by FG Beecroft. A full resolution PDF version is also available in the attachments section.

Note this is a more detailed soil map than the Grow Otago soils maps, but uses the old Genetic Soil Classification - soil naming conventions used in this map and the attached report may differ from those found in newer soils maps and databases.

This dataset was last updated on LRIS Portal on 04 Aug 2017.

This data layer was derived from terrain analysis of a 25 m resolution national digital terrain model to create a setof landform elements. The landform elements are derived from a fuzzy classification based on local geometry (curvature and slope) and landscape context, and provide a primary foundation for mapping soil distribution in steepland land systems, which significantly improves knowledge of soil distribution on hillslopes in complex landscapes, and over a wide range of land systems.

A 25m grid of BASE carrying capacity for ALL leases (original model for all lease properties). This layer is buffered around the lease boundaries supplied by LINZ by roughly 5km to ensure that it can be reused for analysis where property boundaries are found to be incorrectly mapped or out-of-date.

This data set is a mask of the temporal and non temporal changes made between land cover database v3.0 and the previous version (land cover database-2). The non-temporal changes include errors in the earlier mappings, step artefact removal, and coastline adjustments. Note: the non-temporal attribute is named "NoTemporal" due to a character length limitation.

An “authority” attribute is also available in this layer indicating the source of the change for both non-temporal and temporal changes mapped. The Authority attribute indicates who identified the change, where;

1 = Landcare Research.
2 = Regional Council or Territorial Authority.
3 = Department of Conservation.

This layer was produced with a map tolerance of 10cm.

Funding is from the Ministry for Science and Innovation under contract CO9X1101, which was contributed to by the Ministry for the Environment. The Department of Conservation and individual regional councils and territorial authorities have made significant in kind contributions by checking the draft mapping for their areas of interest.
