Waikato Coastal Database
Since 2003 Environment Waikato and the Department of Conservation have been working on the development of a coastal marine information database for the Waikato region including a broad range of data (e.g. biological, geological, physical, chemical, social, recreational). The results so far are now published on the internet website:
Editors's note: If you go to this site you will be pleasantly surprised how well organised the database is and the virtual wealth of information that has been assembled here. Full marks to the Waikato Regional Council and DOC staff for the making the collaboration work so well.
You can search on location or data content and on datasets and/or references.
