Summary
Abstract: The quarter million mapping (QMAP) programme is the national 1:250 000 digital
geological mapping project. It is upgrading the national digital coverage of
New Zealand's geology. The database is being created using Geographic
Information Systems software (ARC/INFO and ARCVIEW) but can be exported to most
other GIS packages. Detail on the data tables and associated data dictionaries,
and downloadable ARC/INFO coverage templates, ARCVIEW shapefile templates, and
EXCEL attribute templates are available.

The database is derived from numerous sources such as mining company reports,
petroleum exploration reports, university theses, unpublished research by
Institute staff, and new field work.
