Find hidden secrets in New Zealand satellite imagery - With the recent upgrade of Google satellite mapping imagery for New Zealand the Gadgetophile blog points us to some hidden gems for various locations around New Zealand. Gadgetophile takes you on a very detailed tour of places such as the famed Cape Reinga lighthouse. The description reads: "...The ÂspiritualÂ northernmost point of New Zealand. If you look at the map, the physical northernmost point is across to the east a little way, but the lighthouse at Cape Reinga is the most readily accessible area, and quite often referred to as New ZealandÂs northernmost point."
