We have teamed up with our strategic partner 20/20 Trust to build an interactive map of New Zealand that shows the divides across the country for Internet access, use, skill and social deprivation.
This is the first tool that shines light on the digital divides in New Zealand, allows you to see the different types of digital divides that affect our communities and enables you to find information about what support is out there in communities to address digital divides.
The map is a catalyst project by the Digital Futures Partnership as we have combined socio-economic datasets, Internet infrastructure data, geospatial mapping and data from the Census and digital skill results from the OECD's Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) survey. 20/20 Trust have also added information about the individual community projects and programmes to address digital divides.
We hope the map helps you, and your local community, address the digital divides affecting your area and New Zealand in general.
However, we're not finished. There is still plenty more that we would like to do to improve and build on the map. If you have any ideas on how to improve or add to the map, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or talk to us on Facebook or Twitter.
