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.

This dataset contains 500 augers observations of soil properties collected for a digital soil mapping and land use capability analysis in the Kaikohe to Paihia area. An additional 172 tacit points of estimated soil properties at sites where pedologists were confident they could predict likely soil distribution are also included.

These data were used in conjunction with elevation, slope and other spatial explicit covariate data to predict soil distributions continuously across 100 km2 of Northland hill country

This dataset is the land inventory and Land use capability output from the MPI SLMACC Northland project. It is derived from raster data through a series of modelling steps based on field data collected at over 400 observation points. Raster maps are then subjected to segmentation processing to create polygons that are assigned inventory attribute values based on zonal statistics from the original raster datasets. The majority of mapping is carried out by automated processing, the exceptions currently being erosion mapping and parent material (because of scale of available source information). Forestry 300 Index and Net Profit data is derived from modelled surfaces provided by SCION. Land Use Capability is assigned according to a set of rules defined by an expert.
