Land Environments of New Zealand (LENZ) is a classification of fifteen climate, landform, and soil variables chosen for their relevance to biological distributions. Classification groups were derived by automatic classification using a multivariate procedure. Four levels of classification detail have been produced from this analysis, containing 20, 100, 200, and 500 groups respectively.

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... ).
