FAQs

Where can I access LUCI?

LUCI is not yet released for general use. We already are supporting a limited number of external users, and are unable to support further applications.

Can you keep me updated on progress?

Sure, email us at info@lucitools.org and we will put you on our contacts list. We'll email you when there are major developments in the programme. We are currently working hard on testing and documentation so that we can put together a timeline for the tool's release.

What is the connection with LUC?

LUC stands for Land Use Capacity. It's an acronym used by New Zealand Crown Research Institute Landcare Research. The LUC system classifies land according to what makes that land able to sustain long-term production. For more information, follow this link:

What is the connection with the Land Use Change and Intensification Programme? Isn't that also called LUCI?
