Judges’ comments

Design combined with utility won NZ Walks Info the top spot. The interface is so easy and the information uncluttered and directly useful, it was hard to resist. It’s important to note that this uses government data but isn’t about government: it’s about tramping in the great Kiwi outdoors, and the government data makes it easier to find and enjoy those tramps.
