Informatics

Landscape and data

Informatics: the use of technology for improving access to and utilisation of information, plays a vital role in the research that Landcare Research undertakes and the digital services that connects us with New Zealanders and the rest of the world.

In the Informatics Team, Landcare Research brings together individuals with cross-disciplinary ideas and expertise spanning the fields of ecology, systematics, genomics, land resources, geoinformatics, remote sensing and computer science.

Landcare Research is the custodian of many nationally significant biological and land resource collections and databases as well as hundreds of other data sets. The Informatics team provides technological support for these collections by means of data storage, modelling, visualisation, and making them accessible over the web, always in close collaboration with the people responsible for collection, the specimens and the data.

We also work with external agencies to assist them to maximise their data and information resources. Our clients include central and regional government, business, other research organisations and Māori iwi.

We can provide:

  • Consultancy and advisory services
  • Data creation, analysis, management and delivery of information products
  • ‘Big Data’ and complex data processing services and automation
  • New tools, systems, and services for delivering information
  • Environmental insight for business and government, including environmental assessment reports
  • Connecting science data to organisational processes
  • Design, development, support and maintenance of on-line science systems and services
  • International data and technical standards development and deployment
  • Collaborative R&D for national and international clients.

The Informatics team manages diverse computational and storage infrastructures in-house and has access to a wide range of analytical software. As a member of NeSI – the New Zealand e­Science infrastructure, Informatics have access to superior computing resources and e­Science services, including the high performance computing facilities at NIWA, University of Auckland, and the University of Canterbury.
