So Much Going On

I s'pose everyone's ideal architecture is different and that the busyness I see in the entrance hall of the Te Kura Hoahoa—School of Design Innovation, Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington (catchy eh) is someone else's design heaven.

Finally, a workable street maps of New Zealand

ZoomIn: New Zealand maps
Forget that other map site (which I'm sure you struggle to use just as I do when I really have to), for your complete NZ mapping solution able to easily find every darned place in Aotearoa head over to ZoomIn.

So, how easy to use - type in your address and find out ... easy eh!

Here's where I work and look at the extremely easy to use URL - - sheer bliss.

It is a cracking mashup of other info so expect to see restaurants, businesses and stuff of interest on your map as well (is it Google Maps based?). If you're into GIS you might wanna check out their API's (example)

So, here's Christchurch and Wellington in all their mapped and tagged (wellington|restaurants) glory.

Who's behind ZoomIn? It comes from Projectx which is a startup running in Wellington (where else) consisting of:
  • John Clegg
  • Ben Nolan
  • Nick Chapman
  • Tomek Piatek
  • Ross Lin

Check out their blog for the latest (addin for Mozilla/Firefox, certainly sir) and sit back and know that we've finally got an online street guide that works.
