NZ Soil Survey Reports

Published from 1973-1991. These reports were used for publishing small or specialised surveys and for making basic soil survey information and maps available as quickly as possible. Each normally consists of one or more maps together with an extended legend and a booklet of explanatory notes.

Note: Hyperlinks to electronic copies have been inserted, where available. Volumes missing from the list have not been published. Care must be taken when interpreting legacy soil maps (scans of old soil maps). Information on these maps has mostly been superseded by S-map.
