WhenuaViz is a new website intended to help Māori land owners and managers find out more about the physical characteristics, constraints and potential of their whenua Māori.

WhenuaViz

Te Puni Kōkiri and Manaaki Whenua - Landcare Research have launched an upgraded version of its website for Māori landowners.

The upgraded WhenuaViz website is now live. It combines the most up-to-date environmental and land resource data from Manaaki Whenua (Landcare Research) with the updated property and legal data from Māori Land Online (Ministry of Justice). 

The improvements made to the Māori Land Visualisation Tool include:

  • refined search capabilities
  • a guide, including a video guide, to help whānau navigate the site
  • refined search capabilities
  • a glossary of the technical terms used on the site.

The upgrade is designed to it make it easier for Māori freehold land owners to access and understand important information about individual land blocks as well as generate their own land summary reports. This information will help Māori land owners and trustees make more informed decisions about the use of their whenua.
