Electorate Boundaries on Google Maps

This is cool. Electorate boundaries superimposed on Google Maps.

Two surprises for me. One, MMP electorates are big.

Two, many electorates are all at at sea. Check out Wellington Central to see what I mean. Going by the proportion of that electorate that is on land and the proportion at sea, whoever wins WC is going to be spending about 80% of their time administering Cook Strait.

Check it out.
