Interactive map occupancy rate New Zealand
Posted 30 September 2010 - 06:46 AM
Mapicture Aps have produced a map showing the occupancy rate by region in New Zealand.
The map is showing seasonal fluctuations, and that Auckland and Wellington is in the top allmost all the time.
Statistics New Zealand have an outstanding service with both GIS maps and data for free.

You should add somewhere that the occupancy is displayed in (presumably) percent of available units.
I find that the map itself and the "time monitor" (for lack of a better word) in the lower right are too far away from each other so I can't see them well enough at the same time. So It took me several "years" to realize that the South Island main occupancy time period coincides with Christmas season.
Funny that the occupancy rate for the three northern regions of South Island (Marlborough, Nelson and Tasman) are always the equal; the same seems true for Gisborne and Hawke's Bay on eastern North Island. Have those regions possibly been summed together in the statistics? That should be mentioned somewhere if applicable.

Very cool map! I like the interactivity of it. Maybe you can tie this into accommodation searching for the Rugby Word Cup for next year!?
Go the Wallabies!

Thanks for the advices! We did some changes to the maplegend and the spelling. It is allways a bit tricky to write very short maplegends, and still be able to communicate exactly what the map is showing (at least in a not native language).
