This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 19 Jul 2012.

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.
