How the 7 Kingdoms of NZ have change over time

 

It's a little old now, but it shows how the 7 cities have changed over time.

 

Auckland looks like it's been invaded by a virus... but if they are the modern version of 'Kings Landing', what does that make Welly? and where is the wall? (Dunedin?)

Disappointing that most of the Wellington metropolitan area has disappeared in the video: Hutt Valley, Porirua and maybe Kapiti aren't shown.

Although after looking at the Auckland and Hamilton ones, it actually undersells the growth...

 

The visualisations are based on "registering of titles at the house-lot size" so big industrial spaces don't get marked, hence the big gaps in Auckland at East Tamaki, Mt Wellington/Onehunga, out by the Airport etc

 

Also Hamilton out by TeRapa doesn't get marked, making you think its not developed or urban at all, when in fact its a paved over car heavy mess..

At one point in New Zealand's history, Dunedin was bigger than Auckland (population-wise), and Dunedin was the fastest-growing main centre in the country.
