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.
How can we use Whanganui data to connect the local community and visitors in a fun and engaging way?
