We’ve developed a website that displays NZ’s crime data from 2010 to 2014 to help give us a safer NZ. We have a map of NZ with areas with most crime occurrences in bright red, least in bright green and the rest around the middle. We also have a timeline that allows the user to change the year. This website aims to let the users see the areas in NZ that getting safer or more dangerous, and uses additional data to give reasons as to why an area is getting safer.

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.
