Geotechnical Database HB
The Hawke’s Bay Regional Council and HB Civil Defence Emergency Management Group supports 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 pooling of geotechnical data will continue to facilitate a greater understanding of the distribution, variability and behaviour of the soils and sediments beneath Hawkes’ Bay, leading to better informed decision making regarding the use of the land, and assist with furthering scientific assessments, like the recent liquefaction risk review.
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).
