HeART of the Nation, Auckland, New Zealand – New GeoEye Case Study Showcased

The Auckland Council worked in partnership with GeoEye to gather satellite images of the World’s Most Friendly Welcome from a small country that was BIG on welcoming the world to their shores. This project is part of a larger program that began 18 months prior to the Rugby World Cup 2011 when the Council engaged a local beautification charitable trust to develop the HeART of the Nation program. The program created a series of 22, huge word installations on farmland close to Auckland’s main airport. The idea came from a need to show off to the world the creative talents of South Auckland where a large Maori and Polynesian population exist. These mega-size welcome words were placed directly under Auckland’s international and domestic flight paths to greet all 20 nations competing in the Rugby World Cup 2011 in their own language…
