Project Details Ngā taipitopito
A new digital gateway is needed to give all New Zealanders transparent access to trusted data sources.
Land and water data can be inaccessible, expensive, hard to find, or not publicly available. This research aims to create a digital gateway to data and tools that is user-friendly, open-access, inclusive, collaborative, and trustworthy.
Called Kuaha Matihiko, the digital gateway aims to consolidate access to disparate systems and data layers behind a single ‘shop-front’ that enables people to both access and contribute data.
A ‘minimum viable product’ online platform will be developed.
The project will be highly participatory, with the gateway co-designed through wānanga and engagement with Māori, local and central government, and other stakeholders, to ensure that Kuaha Matihiko is relevant and attractive to various groups to meet their needs.
