Graphic chart showing approximately the proportions of coastline to land in New Zealand, France, and New South Wales respectively. The small squares, 100 miles a side, each represent 10,000 square miles of territory. New Zealand is represented to the left as a country 1,000 miles long by 100 broad. The length of coastline is practically doubled by indentations, as represented by the ten-square diagram. The small squares above France and New South Wales show for those countries the average extent of coastline for 10,000 square miles of territory viz.—75 and 25 miles respectively, compared with 400 miles of coast for the same area in the case of New Zealand.
