Kaikoura faults (2015)

Scientists from GNS Science have compiled the latest earthquake fault information for the Kaikōura district.View the full report here.This active fault dataset, prepared by GNS Science under contract to Canterbury Regional Council (ECan), is based on the GNS Science QMAP (Quarter-Million-scale) geological map dataset 'faults' layer. The base dataset was extracted from the QMAP 'seamless' dataset in mid-2014, and modified by the addition of three new attribute fields, and in some cases the repositioning of some faults or parts of faults, or the addition of new faults. The three new attribute fields are:KDC_name (local names for the mapped features)Certainty (see report text)Surf_form (see report text) In order to make clear the linkage between the QMAP dataset and the amended dataset prepared as part of this project, all the attributes of the QMAP dataset are retained, without modification, in these shapefiles. For this report, all amendments are contained within three additional data fields. Any newly identified faults mapped as part of the ECan project are identifiable by the lack of any QMAP attributes. All the data have been compiled at a regional scale (1:250,000) and the locations of active faults are +/- 100 m at best, but more commonly +/- 250 m.
