Heap Map

Team Name: 
Virtual Heap

Project Decription:  Using virtual reality, we are projecting data into what we call "The Heap Map."  This is a visual and interactive virtual world in which statistical data is shown falling down and collecting into heaps onto a map of NZ.  Targeting intermediate and secondary school children, this will create a fun and engaging way to interact with statistical information.  We gathered data primarily from Statistics New Zealand, such as population and internet accessibility.
