Assessing land use

The tool combines information on Māori land from the Ministry of Justice with environmental and land resource data from Landcare Research. You can locate blocks of land by using an interactive map or searching for a block name or place name and then, at a mouse click, transfer this into the national land use capability map. Here you can see whether your land may be suitable for horticulture, cropping, pastoral farming or forestry and identify areas needing long term protection.
