Started in late 1994, the first map Dunedin was published in 1996 and since that time maps have been completed at a rate of between one and two per year. This Crown-funded programme will produce complete national coverage of New Zealand ’s geology in 21 maps. A GIS (Geographic Information System) has been used to capture, maintain, and produce maps from the raw geological data, and is creating a seamless regional-scale digital geological database. New field research is done where there is little or no information, or where major scientific advances are possible. This includes working in remote areas such as the high peaks of the Southern Alps and the dense wet bush of the Urewera. For many areas the data is being captured from sources such as mining company reports, university theses, and previous publications.
