A world map posted on Reddit puts 'Middle-earth' right where it should be - in the centre.
After years of complaining online, and a viral video starring Rhys Darby and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, the world is becoming more aware that New Zealand is being missed off world maps.
A post on Reddit went viral overnight for placing New Zealand not just on a map, but right in the centre of it.
- All the maps that are missing New Zealand
- Jacinda Ardern, Ed Sheeran, Sir Peter Jackson star in new Tourism NZ ad
- Map shows New Zealand sea surface much warmer than this time last year
"Kiwis are asleep, let's surprise them with a map of the Earth centred on New Zealand," said the post by US-based user Daniel Arnett.
It has been seen by thousands after being posted in a thread called Maps Without NZ, where people have been posting maps excluding Aotearoa for years.
One comment said the New Zealand-centred map "looks way better" than maps that are more commonly centred around Africa or the Americas.
Another user said the map "really freshens the usual view of Earth up".
What do you think? Should all maps be centred around New Zealand?
