The New Zealand Fundamental Soil Layer originates from a relational join of features from two databases: the New Zealand Land Resource Inventory (NZLRI), and the National Soils Database (NSD). The NZLRI is a national polygon database of physical land resource information, including a soil unit. Soil is one in an inventory of five physical factors (including rock, slope, erosion, and vegetation) delineated by physiographic polygons at approximately 1:50,000 scale. The NSD is a point database of soil physical, chemical, and mineralological characteristics for over 1500 soil profiles nationally. A relational join between the NZLRI dominant soil and derivative tables from the NSD was the means by which 14 important soil attributes were attached to the NZLRI polygons. Some if these attributes originate from exact matches with NSD records, while others derive from matches to similar soils or professional estimates. This layer contains best available, as at 2000, profile available water (PAW) data which estimates total available water for the soil profile to a depth of 0.9 m, or to the potential rooting depth (whichever is the lesser). Values are weighted averages over the specified profile section (0-0.9 m) and are expressed in units of mm of water.

Some if these attributes originate from exact matches with NSD records, while others derive from matches to similar soils or professional estimates. This layers contains flood return interval attributes. The classes originate from and are described more fully in Webb and Wilson (1995).

Some if these attributes originate from exact matches with NSD records, while others derive from matches to similar soils or professional estimates. This layer contains the particle size classification attribute. Particle size class describes in broad terms the proportions of sand, silt and clay in the fine earth fraction of the soil except in the case of skeletal soils ( > 35% coarse fraction ) where it applies to the whole soil. The classes are described in Webb and Wilson (1995) and the user should also refer to the item grav_class for a description of the topsoil gravel content of soils. For the 2nd Edition Gisborne-East Coast mapping, particle size is recorded as undefined as soils were mapped directly to the New Zealand Soil Classification.

Some if these attributes originate from exact matches with NSD records, while others derive from matches to similar soils or professional estimates. This layers contains the permeability profile attribute. Permeability is the rate that water moves through saturated soil. The permeability of a soil profile is related to potential rooting depth, depth to a slowly permeable horizon and internal soil drainage. Permeablity classes are from Clayden and Webb (1994).
