Land Use in the Bay of Plenty

The purpose of the landuse data is to input into a region wide Integrated Catchment Model. Because there wasn't a land use layer mapped at a region scale this project took 3 different approaches to map the landuse layer you will see in the app. These are: 1) from existing data (lcdbv4, landcare data, agribase - all different scales, time periods, coverage, methods of development) and 2) from aerial photography (2011, 2014 coastal, part 2016 where available and satellite/google earth) and 3) ground truthed where possible. The scale of use is around 1:5,000. This will improve over time as we continue to collect more data. Use of the data should be from 1:50,000 because of the other inputs to the creation of this dataset were for use at 1:50,000. The model this data feeds into is also of region scale so was only required to input to the model.This data is still in development and should not be taken as being 100% accurate.
