Rivers Workshop

Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) and NIWA have been working with regional councils on how they can make rivers data more useful. 

Both organisations recently held a workshop with Bay of Plenty Regional Council, Environment Southland, and Waikato Regional Council which looked at the potential for a new river network dataset.

Rivers data is useful for helping to understand and mitigate the impacts of floods, and LINZ is working to ensure New Zealand has geographic information that will improve our resilience to natural events. Rivers are also one of the high priority datasets identified by the Local Government Geospatial Alliance.

The next step is for LINZ to share ideas with other relevant agencies and to understand their preferences for a new river network dataset. This would inform LINZ on the priorities of this dataset and help with future work planning.

If you have any questions or ideas please contact Douglas Kwan at LINZ – dkwan@linz.govt.nz  04 830 2103



    Hello Every One, My Name is Trevor Cohen live in Texas and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now. I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my friends but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk. I could in turn start something profitable with the remaining amount and i said to my self that i will shout loud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender EDWARD JONES and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing Company via: Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com
