LUCAS New Zealand Land Use Map 1990-2008 (v011)

This supersedes v003 formerly at koordinates.com/layer/1414-new-zealand-land-use-ma....

The Ministry for the Environment, LUCAS Land Use Map is composed of New Zealand-wide land use classifications (12) nominally at 1 January 1990, 1 January 2008 and 31 December 2012 (known as "1990", "2008" and "2012"). These date boundaries were dictated by the First Commitment Period of the Kyoto Protocol. LUM v011 contains land use classifications as at the start of 1990 and 2008. The layer can therefore be used to create either a 1990 or a 2008 land use map depending what field is symbolised.

LUM tracks and quantifies changes in New Zealand land use so that Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) sector carbon accounting can be calculated for national Net Position, Kyoto Protocol and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) reporting.

The REC groups rivers and parts of river networks that share similar ecological characteristics, including physical and biological. Rivers that share the same class can be treated as similar to one another and different to rivers in other classes. The REC classification system groups rivers according to several environmental factors that strongly influence or cause the rivers’ physical and ecological characteristics (climate, topography, geology and land cover). A catchment is a polygon that defines the upstream watershed of a river system or sub-system. Land cover within the catchment was used to populate the river classification factors (see table 1.1 of the User Guide www.mfe.govt.nz/environmental-reporting/about/tool... ).

A spatial dataset identifying a set of environmental conditions that have potential to inhibit growth of newly-established woody vegetation such that it might not reach a ‘forest’ status (defined as greater than 30% cover of trees of 5 m height) within a 30-40 year timeframe.

Inclusions: temperature, moisture availability, edaphic conditions, coastal exposure, and land instability

Exclusions: herbivory, competition, external gene pools, availability of seed sources and dispersers, and also fire

This ELF layer is designed to provide a concise evidence source to guide decision making regarding the potential for naturally regenerating species to reach the criteria for Kyoto-compliant forest. Due to the variable quality in the source data used to compile this layer it should only be considered to provide guidance and should not be used as authoritative for forest eligibility/ineligibility under any government scheme.

General map raster 1:1,000,000 is a dataset depicting the terrain and covering the whole of Finland. Most essential target groups are water systems, traffic route networks and administrative borders. The administrative borders, the nomenclature and the traffic route network are updated yearly and other elements every 5 years.

RPS - Coastal Environment - Council Decision October 2013 Version

The Regional Policy Statement is one of the most important planning tools for Northland. It sets out how our natural and physical resources should be managed into the future – from the mountains to the sea and for the benefit of all Northlanders.

The new Regional Policy Statement will underpin the integrated management of our resources (land, water, air, soil, minerals, energy, all plants and animals, and all structures). This means considering the environment as a whole and recognising that changes, or the effects of human activities, in one area or on one resource, can affect other resources.

It will provide for the wellbeing of our people and economic development while sustainably managing our resources for future generations. It will also impact how people, businesses and industry use, develop and protect Northland’s resources and it will influence future district and regional plans.

Every regional council is required under the Resource Management Act to have a Regional Policy Statement in place at all times.

In Northland it covers the management of natural and physical resources throughout the region, from Kaiwaka in the south, to Cape Reinga in the north, and out to the 12 nautical mile (22.2 km) limit.

Part of the Proposed Regional Policy Statement is a set of proposed maps that show Northland’s ‘outstanding’ areas and ‘coastal environment’.

These maps have been developed to meet requirements under the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement 2010 and the Resource Management Act 1991.

Further information on our website

The coastal environment is essentially where the sea directly affects the land and the land directly affects the sea. It is defined using ‘bio-physical’ criteria – things like ridgelines, vegetation type and soil type – so it varies in width around our coast and tends to follow natural features (rather than property boundaries or roads).

The coastal environment is applied to coastal settlements, harbours, estuaries and urban areas – not just the open coast. It also extends 12 nautical miles out to sea and includes all islands within this distance.

Under the New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement, we’re required to identify the whole coastal environment. It will include some urban areas close to the coast (whereas coastal zoning tends to stop in residential and other highly developed areas).
