This dataset was first added to MfE Data Service on 13 Aug 2021.

The StockEx LSL 2021 proposed layer identifies proposed areas of "low slope land" where the Resource Management (Stock Exclusion) Regulations 2020 would apply if the low slope land map was updated as proposed in the "Stock exclusion regulations: Proposed changes to the low slope map" (MfE, 2021) discussion document. The layer shows the area of land defined as low slope land. These areas have a local mean slope is less than or equal to 5 degrees and are below 500m in altitude. Areas of lakes and ponds, estuarine open water, built-up areas, transport infrastructure, depleted grass, tall tussock grassland and urban parkland, as defined in Land Cover Database 5, are also excluded.

Note: The current regulation layer is 'Stock Exclusion Low Slope Land 2020'

Full report: Memorandum on implementing a national index for susceptibility to streambank erosion: environment.govt.nz/publications/national-index-st...

This dataset contains predictions of the susceptibility to streambank erosion for every stream link in the RECv2.5 digital river network. Streambank erosion susceptibility is computed as a dimensionless index (range 0-100) for each stream link based on factors that may influence reach-scale bank erosion. These factors comprise stream power, the extent of riparian woody vegetation, valley confinement, channel sinuosity, and the erodibility of stream banks based on soil texture. The approach for determining streambank erosion susceptibility is described by Smith & Betts (2021) and based on the bank erosion model developed by Smith et al. (2019).

The Stock Exclusion Low Slope Land 2020 layer identifies areas of "low slope land" as defined in the Resource Management (Stock Exclusion) Regulations 2020. The layer shows the land parcels, or part parcels, defined as low slope land. These areas have a mean slope is less than or equal to 10 degrees. Parcels with a parcel intent of "ROAD" are excluded. Areas of lakes, ponds, settlements and urban parkland, as defined in Land Cover Database 5, are also excluded. Areas of low-slope grassland and annual cropland within high-slope parcels are also included in the Stock Exclusion Low Slope Land extent.

This dataset provides boundaries for catchments that drain to the sea (i.e. sea draining catchments).

It is extracted from the Freshwater Ecosystems of New Zealand (FENZ) v1.0 geodatabase. Ministry for the Environment hosts this copy of this layer for convenience and visibility. For all inquiries please contact Department of Conservation directly.

FENZ requires specialist GIS knowledge for its technical operation and biodiversity knowledge for understanding the content. Because of FENZ’s complexity, DOC is providing advice, briefings and training (where possible) to ensure users understand its strengths, limitations and appropriate applications.

If you would like more information about FENZ or access to any FENZ data sets, email fenz@doc.govt.nz.

Variables:

Catch_id - This is a unique identifier that can be used to link to other datasets in the FENZ database, or datasets from other sources that also use a FENZ id.

Catchment names:

Currently a definitive catchment names dataset does not exist. However for your convenience, an unofficial list has been provided in the attachments ("fenz_catnames.csv") which can be joined to the catchment boundaries to provide names. Feedback on the accuracy or completeness of these names is welcomed.
