This Soils Portal provides you with access to information on New Zealand's soils held by Manaaki Whenua. From this site you can access data from the National Soils Database, Fundamental Soils Layers, Digital Soil Surveys and the S-map database. There is also a wealth of explanatory information about current and historical soil-naming schemes used in New Zealand.
The Soils Portal will always be a work-in-progress. We are committed to expanding the information that is available and are interested in your suggestions, so please use the Contact link to tell us your ideas.
