Landcare-Research -Manaaki Whenua

Māori Land Visualisation Tool

An online tool to help Māori land owners make more informed decisions about how to use their land to support whanau and fulfil and balance its economic and cultural potential.


  • Where is my land?
  • What are the main characteristics of my land?
  • What is the land suitable for?
  • What is the potential of the land?

This new tool has been designed to help Māori land owners and land managers answer these questions. The tool is on-line, free and does not require specialist GIS software or skills - anyone can use it! 

The tool combines the updated Māori land block (property and legal) data from the Ministry of Justice (Māori land online) with environmental and land resource data from Landcare Research.
