Point A to Point B

From the Mapping London blog, a picture of commuter flows in Great Britain. The difference in public transport use between London and the other cities is dramatic.  They have lots of other maps, including one of language use in London based on Twitter messages.  That would be interesting to do for NZ cities.

    A language map of NZ would be especially cool; unfortunately the available open source language detection suites don’t appear to id much more than the Euro languages, with Te Reo Māori, let alone the rest of the Pacific languages (for the moment?) out.
