Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


New Zealand in Google Maps

Oh, excellent, you can see New Zealand on Google Maps now.

Here's Christchurch.

As soon as I zoom in much more than this, though, I get a bunch of broken images. So I guess they only have the outlines of the country, not the street maps (which are available for not too much cash from LINZ).

The satellite maps are better: here's central Christchurch. The big green blob on the left is Hagley Park (131 hectares) and the white and pink area is the CBD.
