Canterbury - Ashley Fault Zone Fault Complexity 2014Request Access
Canterbury - Ashley Fault Zone Fault Complexity 2014 - There are four maindata fields. 'AREA' gives the extent of each polygon in square metres. 'Feature' identifies the fault deformation hazard/Fault Avoidance Zonation unit type, based largely on the 'TYPE' field in the Ashley Fault Zone ground deformation dataset. 'FAZ_class' identifies the category of fault complexity, as set out in Table 2 of theaccompanyingreport.'NAME' identifiesthe fault or other landform unit with which the FAZ unit polygon is associated.This dataset was compiled for presentation at a scale of 1:35,000 in the report, but the data were captured at more detailed scales.The dataset is derived from the Ashley Fault Zone ground deformation dataset. Accuracy of the polygon boundaries is the same as for the geomorphologic map unit dataset. The geomorphologic map units were drawn on-screen at a scale of approximately 1:10,000, except for tectonic landform map units, which were mapped at ~1:5,000 scale. Locations of the boundaries of the map unit boundaries are considered to be accurate to about +/- 30 m, apart from the tectonic landform unit boundaries, which are considered to be accurate to +/- 10 m at best on the younger river terraces (Okuku Terrace 3/Makerikeri Terrace 2 and younger), but are no better than +/- 20 m on older terrace or hill landforms.Accompanying report is Barrell, D.
