Digital Elevation Model (DEM) - 100M - Derived LayersThis dataset comprises several GIS layers and image backdrops derived from Waikato Regional Council’s 100m Digital Elevation Model (DEM). The elevation layer summarises a range of elevations and the aspect layer summarises a range of aspects. The purpose of these layers is for GeoMedia users to be able to display and analyse elevation and aspect information. Image backdrops derived from the 100m DEM are a shaded relief image backdrop and hypsometrically tinted image. These images are designed to provide contextual information for display behind other GIS datasets.Aspect DEM Elevation Relief

Identification of SNA is an important step in managing the region’s natural heritage, protecting threatened species from the risk of extinction, reconnecting fragmented ecosystems, and meeting the requirements of the Resource Management Act 1991. Significant natural areas provide us with a wide range of ecosystem services, including habitat for native plant and animal species, flood or erosion control, providing oxygen, helping to regulate climate, and scenic appeal.Biodiversity Ecology Ecosystems Fauna Flora Native RPS SNA Sand dune Terrestrial Wetland
