  • GIS datasets relevant to geothermal fields Include GIS layers used regularly for site specific and/or client specific projects. They represent surface expressions of geothermal infrastructures, geothermal features, geosciences and topographic layers. DOI: https://doi.org/10.21420/1D0X-FK77 Cite dataset as: GNS Science.

  • The National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM) for New Zealand provides probabilistic estimates of the strength of earthquake shaking that can be expected according to a user-defined time period and probability, e.g. the peak ground acceleration (PGA) that has a 10% chance of happening in any 50 year time window. Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis (PSHA) uses the location, recurrence behaviour, and predicted ground motions of earthquake sources to estimate the hazard at a site, or across a grid of sites as shown in the map below for Class C (shallow soil) site conditions. The NSHM is an algorithm that draws upon several component models to calculate its results. It uses a fault model that combines New Zealand’s active fault database, which includes 536 fault sources, and the 170 year historical earthquake catalogue. The background model is comprised of a multi-layered background seismicity grid DOI: https://doi.org/10.21420/MX74-Q807 Site as: GNS Science. (2020).

  • This dataset contains 2016 Kaikōura surface ruptures mapped at a scale of 1:250,000. The dataset is simplified to this scale from the high resolution New Zealand Active Faults Database (NZAFD). Please note this dataset is a subset taken from NZAFD 1:250,000 scale (the primary source) on the 28 July 2020. The primary source of the dataset is an ESRI vector feature class managed in a PostgreSQL database, with updates intermittently published to the GNS ArcGIS server as a web map service. The data can also be viewed through the NZAFD website and downloaded from there in shapefile, KML, JSON and text formats. The dataset comprises polylines, with each line representing the location of an active fault trace at or near the surface. Each fault trace has attributes that describes its name, orientation, displacement, sense of movement, time of last movement and other fault activity parameters.

  • This dataset contains onshore active faults data for New Zealand. Active faults in New Zealand are defined as those that have ruptured and/or caused ground deformation during the last 125,000 years (except for in the Taupo Volcanic Zone, where the definition of activity is restricted to only include the last 25,000 years). The dataset is produced by GNS Science and represents the most current mapping of active faults for New Zealand in a single dataset, designed for portrayal at 1:250,000. The data are derived from the QMAP Geological Map of New Zealand Project and the high resolution New Zealand Active Faults Database (NZAFD). The primary source of the dataset is an ESRI vector feature class managed in a PostgreSQL database, with updates intermittently published to the GNS ArcGIS server as a web map service. The data can also be viewed through the NZAFD website and downloaded from there in shapefile, KML, JSON and text formats; however, these are not updated as frequently as the map service and are static copies of the database with the timestamp in the file name. The dataset comprises polylines, with each line representing the location of an active fault trace at or near the surface. Each fault trace has attributes that describes its name, orientation, displacement, sense of movement, time of last movement and other fault activity parameters.

  • This asset includes hazardous waste information, which is mostly contained in the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Information (RCRAInfo) System, a national program management and inventory system addressing hazardous waste handlers. In general, all entities that generate, transport, treat, store, and dispose of hazardous waste are required to provide information about their activities to state environmental agencies. These agencies pass on that information to regional and national EPA offices. This regulation is governed by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984. RCRAInfo Search can be used to determine identification and location data for specific hazardous waste handlers and to find a wide range of information on treatment, storage, and disposal facilities regarding permit/closure status, compliance with Federal and State regulations, and cleanup activities. Categories of information in this asset include: -- Handlers -- Permit Information -- GIS information on facility location -- Financial Assurance -- Corrective Action -- Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement (CM&E)
