Dunedin area code to location list

When you know an area well you get to know the area code for local suburbs – e.g. Mosgiel people know that all other Mosgiel people (and some close neighbours) are “489″. I figured it shouldn’t be too hard to collect that data from online services and then do some analysis on it. Armed with PHP and jQuery (which I must commend for being super accommodating through this process) I present you with the results.

DUNEDIN PHONE NUMBER TO AREA LIST
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
  This list is based on a subset of 2,795 phone numbers
  Generated Mon, 23 Apr 2012 00:44:03 +1200 from public phone number lists.
  Compiled by bob@guru.net.nz, www.guru.net.nz.
  This list contains 28 phone suffixes and 96 distinct areas.

  Note: The % in the list is how many numbers in that area code are in the
  listed suburb (e.g. if 03-453 says Mornington 44% and Belleknowes 21% then
  that means that 44% of the 03-453 area numbers are Mornington based and 21%
  are Belleknowes based)

    As http://twitter.com/#!/yjmbo pointed out, “I think the 9xx numbers might be from VoIP providers — 951 came to me from Venture VoIP as a Dunedin number.”

    He’s right – Orcon’s Genius phones arrived in Dunedin with 03-9* numbers, and our number we used to have via 2talk was prefixed with 03-943.

    As these numbers aren’t bound to exchanges in the same way as the old numbers were you can’t use 03-9* numbers to determine location of the caller.
