Sometimes it seems like there is an almost weekly occurrence of New Zealand being “left off” a world map somewhere.
Last weekend there were a lot of cars parked on the beachfronts of New Zealand while we were in level 4 lock down. A number of coastal locals were getting a bit grumpy, wanting to dob-in these (as they saw it) non-local lockdown breakers – feeling that they should be doing their exercise closer to home.
We keep hearing that data is the new oil and while you would be unsurprised to learn that here at NationalMap we have ALWAYS seen the value of high quality geospatial data – it seems the rest of the world is finally catching up with that concept.
We’ve all read (perhaps with varying degrees of amusement) the seemingly endless stories of epic GPS fails. This compilation of disaster from “The Travel” website is a favourite, as it covers such a range of instances where things can “go wrong”.
Every little bit helps. It’s a statement that really couldn’t be truer than when it comes to tackling the challenge of climate change and environmental sustainability.
