Mapping This Moment: Auckland, New Zealand

Margot Moller

Auckland, North Island, NZ


I started this map before lockdown, initially showing some interesting places to visit. I live in the CBD. Auckland and NZ is heavily reliant on tourism. The outline of the boat in the harbour is a ghost as are the hotels in the city. We are on level 2 alert, so things are almost back to normal. 49 known active cases in our country today, 16th May, out of 5 million inhabitants.No group gatherings of more than 10 are permitted, with the exemption of funerals. This is probably not quite to brief, but here I am. My first map.
