How to use our web Information & Emergency Situation Map

Did you know that our situation map is loaded with useful information about specific hazards in Southland?

  • By simply clicking on the icon that looks like a stack of papers, “Layers List” (see fig 1) you get to open the layers feature which allows you to activate different layers on the map.
  • By ticking e.g. Tsunami Evacuation Zones (fig 2), you will see the map update with evacuation zones.
  • Zoom into the Invercargill/Riverton area and you will see the evacuation zones (fig 3).
  • Untick a layer to remove it from the map. This feature is very handy if you want to zoom in a specific area and get more useful information.

Click on the “Legend” icon (right of Layers icon see fig 4) and find out what all the symbols mean on the map.
