The New Zealand Geotechnical Database (NZGD) is anonline platform that stores geotechnical data from across New Zealand. Active since June 2016, the database contains >80,000 geotechnical datapoints. The database stores collar (i.e. location, depth, client, project, etc...) information along with digital logs of a variety of data types including boreholes, hand augers, and test pits. As the database almagates subsurface information that has previously been inaccesible, its application to scientific research is extensive.
