Geotechnical Database HB
The Hawke’s Bay Civil Defence Emergency Management Group is coordinating a joint project to review liquefaction risks for Hawke’s Bay. This includes supporting the New Zealand Geotechnical Database which has been developed for the use of professional geotechnical and structural engineers to access geotechnical data shared by other engineers and their clients, and to share their own data in return. The database can be accessed here.
Users must register to access the database and can download or contribute geotechnical investigation data by entering basic metadata (RL, coordinates, date etc.) and uploading supporting files (Graphical log, Raw data, AGS4 data). Further information describing the database and its principles of use can be found in the flyer attached – this flyer was developed before the national geotechnical database was established, but still explains how the database is used.
