Meshblock Centres

Having to deal with SHP files other GIS files is terrible. Some extra flat text files (XML/CSV/KML) containing a mapping from Meshblock names to their centre would be nice, and allow actual usage of the 2006 census data.

Actually using 2006 census data without pissing about.

Response from
Statistics New Zealand

Data does not exist

Thank you for your suggestion regarding meshblock centroids.

This is a request that Statistics New Zealand geospatial team are evaluating for future Census datasets, including the 2013 Census meshblock pattern. Statistics New Zealand will not be creating centroids for historic datasets such as the 2006 Census mesblock pattern.
