The GeoSpatial Data Integration Portal has now been withdrawn.  You can find much of the data that was available in the GeoSpatial Data Integration Portal along with additional and new information at one of our new geospatial websites.  These have improved online mapping performance and capabilities. 

These services include:

  • Our Environment - a land atlas of New Zealand. Learn about New Zealand's natural environments. Includes maps and data from the Land Resource Inventory (NZLRI) and Land Cover Database (LCDB).

  • S-map Online– interactive querying of S-map, the new national soils database.  While it will be some time until S-map reaches full national coverage, it does represent a marked improvement in data quality on the Fundamental Soils Layers (FSLs) which it is designed to supersede. 

  • Soils Portal – includes an updated web mapping feature displaying data from the Fundamental Soils Layers (FSLs) and the National Soils Database (NSD). Soils data from the Ross Sea Regions Soils Database is also available.

  • LRIS Portal - a repository of freely downloadable land and soils data and related information. This portal is aimed at users with access to GIS or similar software.

  • National Vegetation Survey Databank (NVS) - a physical archive and electronic databank containing records of over 94,000 vegetation survey plots - including data from over 19,000 permanent plots.

  • The “Animal Distribution” maps for pest species have been withdrawn from our site.  The Department of Conservation now manage the up-to-date version of these datasets which can be found at the DoC protype Geoportal.
