We have two Geographical Information Services (GIS) map services available.
This service enables you to view lots of our regional data overlaid on maps of the Northland region (e.g. Airsheds, Swimming Water Quality Monitoring results).
Before getting started, please ensure your PC is up to date and has the latest version of Silverlight installed. Some older web browsers and operating systems are unable to use Silverlight. If you are connecting from a business - you may need assistance from your IT contact to ensure you're set up correctly.

GIS data download centre
If you have your own GIS mapping software you can download data from the Northland Regional Council page on the Koordinates website. There are two types of data available via this service:
- NRC-produced vector data (provided for free)
This includes things like Regional Water and Soil Plan layers, Regional Coastal Plan layers and flood susceptible areas.
- Aerial photography
There is a small fee (which is to cover Koordinates’ hosting charges) to download this information.
