  • NitrateWatch project (SSIF Project 6) is gathering nitrate data from around New Zealand. Our goal is to provide this information visually to our stakeholders via a map interface • NitrateWatch is aimed at generating new knowledge about nitrates in rural drinking water across New Zealand. • We aim to highlight nitrate hot spots and benchmark nitrate levels for rural drinking water by collecting data from drinking water samples submitted by rural residents. • A further goal is to improve stakeholder engagement through working more closely with iwi, Regional Councils, district Councils, Government agencies and local communities in readiness for future cooperation. • Data generated from this project serves as a talking point to showcase GNS’ leadership in the groundwater/drinking water space. • Our data provides future opportunities for GNS groundwater staff to build new projects leveraged off NitrateWatch

  • This dataset has been superseded by a new edition (2nd edition, 2018) available here: https://data.gns.cri.nz/metadata/srv/eng/catalog.search#/metadata/43B63222-FCC9-4C1D-84EF-FC5FB2F4790F. This 1st edition has been kept as a historical archive and is available on request. This dataset is annotation associated eith the folds data for New Zealand. The dataset is a product of the QMAP Geological Map of New Zealand Project and was produced by GNS Science. The dataset is stored in an ESRI vector geodatabase and exported to ArcGIS Server.

  • This dataset represents the landslide boundaries present at or near the surface and comprises arcs with attributes describing the type of contact and its accuracy. The dataset is part of the Geology of the Tongariro National Park area collection produced by GNS Science. It is stored in an ESRI vector geodatabase and exported to a shapefile. The mapping frame within which the features have been observed is defined as surface geology (i.e. the bedrock and superficial deposits that are exposed at the topographic surface or would be visible if the overlying soil was removed). The data structure complies with the GeoSciML 4.1 standard, where relevant, and uses the appropriate CGI Controlled Vocabularies. The dataset is associated with Townsend DB, Leonard GS, Pure LR, Conway CE, Eaves SR, Wilson CJN (compilers) 2020. Geology of the Tongariro National Park area 1:60 000. GNS Science geological map 4. Digital vector data (2nd ed.). Lower Hutt, New Zealand. GNS Science.

  • Annotation in this layer contains age information for point features in NZL_GNS_GM5_geochronology_50k. The data layer is part of the 'Geology of the Middlemarch area' 1:50 000 dataset covering a part of of East Otago around Middlemarch township.

  • This dataset is the 1:250 000 geological units data for southern Victoria Land, Antarctica between 76°40' S and 78°45' S. The dataset is a product of the QMAP 1: 250 000 mapping project and was produced by GNS Science. It represents a synthesis of the current and historical mapping of the geology of this area in a single dataset at a scale of 1:250 000. The dataset is stored in an ESRI vector geodatabase and exported to ArcGIS Server. The dataset comprises polygons with each polygon having attributes describing the type of geological unit, its content, name and age. It complies with the GeoSciML Portrayal standard for GeologicUnitView. The outcrop surface (map horizon) on which the features are mapped is the Earth surface. The fields required by the GeoSciML Portrayal standard were populated using the CGI Controlled Vocabulary (2012-11).

  • This collection of datasets has been superseded by a new edition (2nd edition, 2018) available here: https://data.gns.cri.nz/metadata/srv/eng/catalog.search#/metadata/43B63222-FCC9-4C1D-84EF-FC5FB2F4790F. This 1st edition has been kept as a historical archive and is available on request. The collection of datasets contains the 1:250 000 geological data for New Zealand. These datasets are a product of the QMAP Geological Map of New Zealand Project and were produced by GNS Science. At the time of publication they represented the most current mapping for New Zealand at a scale of 1:250 000. The datasets are stored in an ESRI vector geodatabase and exported to ArcGIS Server. The datasets comprises multiple geological features with each having attributes that describes them.

  • This dataset represents the labels associated with the structural measurements and comprises annotation which stores the inclination or plunge of the feature. The dataset is part of the Geology of the Tongariro National Park area collection produced by GNS Science. It is stored in an ESRI vector geodatabase and exported to a shapefile.
