The New Zealand Geotechnical Database has been developed for the use of professional
geotechnical and structural engineers to access geotechnical data shared by other
engineers and their clients, and to share their own data in return.
The database is available to professional engineering companies, local and central Government officials,
scientific and academic institutions, the Earthquake Commission, and insurers.
The pooling of geotechnical data will continue to facilitate a greater understanding of the distribution,
variability and behaviour of the soils and sediments beneath New Zealand, leading to better informed decision making
regarding the use of the land, and assist with furthering scientific assessments. The organisations included in the above may use the registration process below to gain a user name and login.
A User Guide, Data Specification and Terms of Access are available for download once a user has logged in.
