New Zealand perspective of the world

Kathleen Jones

This image came across my social media feed and I thought the Kiwis among us would get a kick out of it. I also think it is a big wake-up call to those of us who are not Kiwis to contemplate just how privileged we are to usually see maps from the North American or European point of view.

Earth, centred around NZ

The account I copied this from is called Terrible Maps. I found this on twitter; they’re probably on FB and IG.

Heh. Yet more proof that you can do anything on the internet.

I do like this! Nicely balanced worldview, in my antipodean opinion.

Me too.  Have you  heard the new slogan:

"New Zealand - where it is already tomorrow"

( a truism in the Americas , and after lunch in Europe (due to timezones), but with implications that NZ leads on other things too)
