Nobody Lives Here: Uninhabited Areas of New Zealand
A map of New Zealand showing just how much land is uninhabited per square kilometre, making up 78.21% of our total land area.
Following the posting of several similar maps of other countries, I thought it would be interesting to see how sparse New Zealand was using population data. With 4.6 million people spread out over 268,021 km², New Zealand is not a crowded place when compared to more densely populated countries such as Japan and the UK.
