Unitary spiderweb

There’s a fun article in The Spinoff today by Niko Elsen that explains some of the important bits of Auckland’s Unitary Plan with animated GIFs. Niko mentioned a tweet of a map I made of all the Unitary Plan geodata. In case anyone wants to print a tea towel or whatever, here’s a high resolution version of the whole region (click for bigger):

And a close-up of the central area:

These maps show all the shapes, points, and lines associated with the zoning boundaries and overlays in the Unitary Plan recommended by the Independent Hearings Panel. The source data is available here and is provided by Auckland Council under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 NZ licence.
