CommuterView and MigrationView
CommuterView and MigrationView are interactive visualisation tools for the investigation of local commuting patterns.
These applications were built to provide a flexible and intuitive way of visualising and analysing the complex origin-destination tables that result from analysing New Zealand's Census of Population "workplace address" and "usual address five years ago" questions. CommuterView and MigrationView use Census origin-destination flows for 1996, 2001, and 2006 between the fixed set of 2006 Area Units as input data.
These visualisations do not contain any numbers. This is intentional. The role of the visualisation is to unlock the broad patterns of movement that are present in the data and providing a quick overview of the magnitude of flow between areas.Instead of numbers, the size and colour of a flow arrow is proportional to the number of individuals travelling along that flow.
Please refer to the Installation Guide for detailed instructions on how to install plug-in software and load the visualisations in your web browser. Please make sure that you read the Installation Guide before using this product.
Interactive Boundary Maps
Use Statistics NZ's new maps to locate an area or address, and then discover some facts about it, drawn from the 2006 Census.
You can quickly retrieve simple information about specific areas using Interactive Boundary Maps. Check out your own region, your town or city, your suburb, even your own small neighbourhood (a meshblock).
Use either a street view or an aerial view to choose the boundaries of the area you're interested in. Then collect some quick figures and facts about it, such as:
• The number of households in the area
• The number of people in it
• Their median age
• The median personal income (available at regional or town level, not at meshblock level).
