Just noticed Otago University have been working on a NZ wide aid to residents, and I also think it could be looked at as another “helper” in the mix for folk considering their options about living in certain areas.
mention their aim ;
A searchable online map showing where in New Zealand cyclists have been injured as a result of car doors opening has been created by University of Otago injury prevention researchers.
map shows approximately 245 cycle door injury location over this 2007-11 period and indicates their seriousness and the direction the cyclist was traveling. And because its an overlay that rests on-top of Google Maps, its a breeze to use and visualise.
Otago researchers create online injured cyclist-door crash map
Great idea, and again, shows the advantages that the web can offer up each and every day.

In our region we have one main daily newspaper,
published each afternoon, usually available in Newsagents and dairies around noon. The Nelson Mail,
We also happen to have The Leader which is published weekly as well.
just the facts, the Good News facts....
And rounding out the selection, we have the two weekly “good news only” papers…….
. The Nelson Weekly and The Waimea Weekly .
Two Editions back, the Nelson / Waimea Weekies announced they had just undergone a revamp of their website, so I thought I should ensure that you are aware of same.
Head on over there, or rather
to be taken there now. click here
