State Highway 1 Population

This was an experiment to see what New Zealand’s resident population looks like if we show it as a kind of bar chart along State Highway 1. The Estimated Resident Population (ERP) data from NZ.Stat for SA2 areas was mapped to the nearest point on SH1 and then a bar was drawn to the right or left depending on whether the SA2 area was to the east or west of the highway.
