  • This dataset has been superseded by a new edition (4th edition, 2023) available here: https://data.gns.cri.nz/metadata/srv/eng/catalog.search#/metadata/3f6b15da-29a6-11ee-be56-0242ac120002. This dataset represents the textural metamorphic zones (as defined by Turnbull, I.M.; Mortimer, N.; Craw, D. 2001 Textural zones in the Haast Schist -- a reappraisal. New Zealand journal of geology and geophysics, 44(1): 171-183) that occur within the geological units and comprises polygons with attributes describing the rock type, age and stratigraphic nomenclature. The dataset is part of the Geological Map of New Zealand collection produced by GNS Science. 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 Heron, D.W. (custodian) 2020: Geological Map of New Zealand 1:250 000. GNS Science Geological Map 1 (3rd ed.). Lower Hutt, New Zealand. GNS Science. DOI: https://doi.org/10.21420/03PC-H178.

  • 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 Geological Map of New Zealand (Chatham Islands) collection produced by GNS Science. This dataset forms part of Heron, D.W.

  • This is the Geological Map of New Zealand (Chatham Islands) dataset collection produced by GNS Science. A Chatham Islands-specific NZGD2000 Transverse Mercator (EPSG:3793) projected coordinate system is used for these data that are east of the 180° meridian. The mapping frame within which the features have been observed is typically 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. This collection forms part of Heron, D.W. (custodian) 2023: Geological Map of New Zealand 1:250 000 (4th ed.) [digital data]. Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. (GNS Science geological map; 1). https://doi.org/10.21420/5XTJ-5718.

This dataset represents the landslide boundaries present at or near the surface and comprises arcs with attributes describing the type of contact, its accuracy and exposure.

  • 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 a simplified version of the geological mapping units of New Zealand and is included only to provide fast display at small scales. The datsets used are a product of the QMAP Geological Map of New Zealand Project and were produced by GNS Science. The datasets are stored in an ESRI vector geodatabase and exported to ArcGIS Server.

  • This dataset is the 1:250 000 miscellaneous (non-geological) polygon 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. The dataset is stored in an ESRI vector geodatabase and exported to ArcGIS Server. The dataset comprises polygons with each polygon having attributes describing its type and source. The data should not be used at scales beyond that for which it was prepared.

  • This dataset represents the sources used to compile the geological datasets. The dataset is part of the Geology of the Pukekohe area collection produced by GNS Science. This dataset forms part of Bland KJ, Townsend DB, Hill MP, Jones KE (compilers). 2023. Geology of the Pukekohe area [digital data]. Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. (GNS Science geological map; 12b).

This dataset represents the geological units present at or near the surface and comprises polygons with attributes describing the rock type, age and stratigraphic nomenclature. The dataset is part of the Geological Map of New Zealand collection produced by GNS Science. 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).

  • This dataset represents the faults present at or near the surface and comprises arcs with attributes describing the type of fault, its name, age and activity, and the sense of movement and cumulative slip. The dataset is part of the Geological Map of New Zealand (Mainland) collection produced by GNS Science. The mapping frame within which the features have been observed is typically 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) but the mapping frame for some concealed features is bedrock (i.e. the solid rock that may either be exposed at the topographic surface or covered by other unconsolidated deposits). The data structure complies with the GeoSciML 4.1 standard for ShearDisplacementStructureView and uses the appropriate CGI Controlled Vocabularies. This dataset forms part of Heron, D.W.
