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 email@example.com.
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.
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.
