Spatial surface estimates of soil carbon stock (units tonnes per hectare) for the 0–30cm layer, over the land surface of New Zealand, based on a generalised linear regression model using environmental classification, national soil layer, and climate layers as explanatory variables, with a correction for spatial auto correlation of data samples. Estimates are made on a grid where each grid cell has dimensions 1,000 m x 1,000 m (100 ha). The value at each grid cell is our best estimate of the mean soil carbon stock across the area occupied by each grid cell.
A number of data layers were acquired to act as explanatory layers for the prediction of soil carbon. Soil data includes the MfE Historic Soils Database (under an agreement with MfE), the NSD (LandcareResearch New Zealand 2012), the SINDI soil quality dataset (Landcare Research New Zealand 2012), and the LMI soils dataset (under an agreement with Plant and Food Research 2011).Additional explanatory data layers were obtained from the LENZ data set (Landcare Research New Zealand), including the LENZ climate layers (e.g. mean annual rainfall) as well as environmental classification layers (LENZ level 1, 2, 3, and 4), from the Koordinates data portal (Koordinates 2012). In addition, the natural potential vegetation layer (Leathwick 2001) is used as an indicator of vegetation prior to agricultural development. These layers were augmented by explanatory layers acquired from the LRIS portal (Landcare Research 2012), consisting of national maps of basic soil properties (soil order, exchangeable calcium, acid soluble phosphorus, rock class, mid-estimate of surface outcrops, annual water deficit). Additional 0–30cm carbon stock data was obtained by using SINDI data (derived from 0–10cm depth samples) along with NSD data and a regression model to infer 0–30cm soil carbon stocks (tonnes/ha) at the centre of each pixel.
This data is owned by the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI)).

The New Zealand Land Cover Database (LCDB) is a multi-temporal, thematic classification of New Zealand's land cover. It identifies 33 mainland land cover classes (35 classes once the offshore Chatham Islands are included). The classification was revised between versions 1, 2, and 3 but has been consistent thereafter, and always with backward compatibility maintained. Land cover features are described by a polygon boundary, a land cover code, and a land cover name at each nominal time step; summer 1996/97, summer 2001/02, summer 2008/09, summer 2012/13, and summer 2018/19. The data set is designed to complement in theme, scale and accuracy, New Zealand’s 1:50,000 topographic database (www.linz.govt.nz/land/maps/topographic-maps/topo50...). LCDB is suitable for use in national and regional environment monitoring, forest and shrubland inventory, biodiversity assessment, trend analysis and infrastructure planning. The classification used in LCDBv5.0 is presented in the document 'LCDBClassesAtVersion5.pdf' and a table correlating LCDB classes over all versions is presented in the document 'LCDBClassCorrelations.pdf'. Both of these are among the accessory documents to this dataset in the LRIS portal (lris.scinfo.org.nz/). LCDB version 5.0 was released in January 2020 and includes corrections to all time steps1997/97, 2001/02, 2008/09, 2012/13 and 2018/19 for both the New Zealand mainland and Chatham Islands. A description of work undertaken for this release (including that of all earlier releases) is presented in the Lineage section. Of particular note at version 5.0 is the addition to LCDB, of attributes designed to readily identify and monitor wetlands over time and a similar capability to manage significant coastal changes. “EditAuthority” and "EditDate" are attributes, maintained since version 3.0 to indicate authorship and nominal date of polygon mapping, edit or change. Errors in the data due to misclassification (rather than land cover change) or poor delineation can be reported to Landcare Research for inclusion in the next release using the online feedback facility in lris.scinfo.org.nz/.

The New Zealand Land Cover Database (LCDB) is a multi-temporal digital thematic map of land cover and land use. Land cover at each of four periods; summer 1996/97, summer 2001/02, summer 2008/09, and summer 20012/13, is both delineated and classified. The land cover classification evolved over the first three periods but compatibility has been maintained. The current version, LCDB v4 (and its predecessor LCDB v3), contains 33 classes. The classification used in LCDB v3 and v4 can be found in the document LCDB2-3CorrelationTable.pdf along with the correlation from the classification used in the earlier version (LCDB v2). This document is available as an attachment to this dataset in the LRIS portal (lris.scinfo.org.nz/), and on the LCDB project site (www.lcdb.scinfo.org.nz). The LCDB was designed to be compatible in scale and accuracy with Land Information New Zealand’s 1:50,000 topographic database. The LCDB is intended for use in areas such as state of environmental monitoring, forest and shrub inventory, biodiversity assessment, trend analysis and infrastructure planning. LCDB v4.0 was released in June 2014 and includes non-temporal edits to the 1996/97, 2001/02, and 2008/09 time periods along with new mapping of change up to the summer 2012/13 period. A change layer, “LCDB v4.0 change” is available to indicate both non-temporal and temporal changes made between LCDB v3.3 and LVCDB v4.0, The non-temporal changes include error in earlier mapping. An “authority” attribute is also available in this layer acknowledging the source of the latest mapping of both non-temporal and temporal change. The Chatham Islands, which were available as part of LCDB-2 on a different map projection, have not yet been re-mapped in LCDB v3.0, v3.3, or v4.0.The data is referenced to the New Zealand Transverse Mercator 2000 projection (NZTM2000) which uses the NZ Geodetic Datum 2000 (NZGD2000). Errors in the data due to misclassification (not changes since mapping) or poor delineation can be reported to Landcare Research for inclusion in the next release using the online feedback mechanisms in lris.scinfo.org.nz/.

DEPRECATED - THIS VERSION HAS BEEN SUPERCEDED BY VERSION 4.0 which is now available at lris.scinfo.org.nz/layer/412-lcdb-v40-land-cover-d....

The New Zealand Land Cover Database (LCDB) is a thematic classification of land cover. The current version LCDB3.3 contains 33 classes designed to be compatible with earlier LCDB versions. The polygon features contain a code and boundary representing the land cover type at each of three periods; summer 1996/97, summer 2001/02, and summer 2008/09. The data set was designed to be compatible in scale and accuracy with Land Information New Zealand’s 1:50,000 topographic database. LCDB is intended to be used in areas such as state of environmental monitoring, forest and shrubland inventory, biodiversity assessment, trend analysis and infrastructure planning. The list of classes used in LCDB3.3 can be found in the document LCDB2-3 CorrelationTable.pdf along with the mapping from the class set used in the previous version (LCDB2). This document is available as an attachment to this dataset in the LRIS portal (www.lcdb.scinfo.org.nz/) and on the LCDB project site (www.lcdb.scinfo.org.nz). LCDB3.3 was released in August 2013 and includes corrections to all time steps 1997/97, 2001/02 and 2008/09. In particular, it incorporates edits arising from user feedback, a review of improvements to low producing grasslands in the South Island, updates to croplands from Kyoto Land Use mapping, and corrections to the dating of land cover change mapped in LCDB3.0. “EditAuthority” and "EditDate" attributes are maintained in this layer to indicate the source of the change for both non-temporal and temporal changes mapped.The Chatham Islands, which were available as part of LCDB-2 on a different map projection, have not yet been re-mapped as part of LCDB3.

DEPRECATED - THIS VERSION WAS SUPERCEDED FIRST BY VERSION 3.3 AND MORE RECENTLY BY VERSION 4.0 now available at lris.scinfo.org.nz/layer/412-lcdb-v40-land-cover-d...

This database is a thematic classification of land cover and land use classes. The current version 3 contains 33 classes designed to be compatible with earlier versions. The polygon features contain a code and boundary representing the land cover type at each of three periods; summer 1996/97, summer 2001/02, and summer 2008/09. The data set was designed to be compatible in scale and accuracy with Land Information New Zealand’s 1:50,000 topographic database. The land cover database is intended to be used in areas such as state of environmental monitoring, forest and shrubland inventory, biodiversity assessment, trend analysis and infrastructure planning.

The list of classes used in land cover database v3.0 can be found in the document LCDB2-3 Correlation Table along with the mapping from the class set used in the previous version (land cover database 2). This document is available as an attachment to this dataset (see below), and on the land cover database project site (www.lcdb.scinfo.org.nz).

The land cover database v3.0 was released in July 2012 and includes non-temporal edits to the summer 1996/97, summer 2001/02 time periods along with the new summer 2008/09 period. A change layer, “LCDB v3.0 change” (lris.scinfo.org.nz/layer/308-lcdb-v30-change) is available to indicate both non-temporal and temporal changes made between land cover database 2 and land cover database v3.0, The non-temporal changes include errors in the earlier mappings, step artefact removal, and coastline adjustments. An “authority” attribute is also available in this layer indicating the source of the change for both non-temporal and temporal changes mapped.

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.

The Chatham Islands, which were available as part of land cover database2 on a different map projection, have not been re-mapped as part of land cover database v3.0.

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).

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.
