Is there a way to find Stack Overflow users based on an area?

I know this is a duplicate but I've tried searching and can't find the question. At some point there was a query you could do with the API that showed what the users with the highest reputation is based on their specified location. Can someone help me find that query?

I think that you're looking for List of Users in a given location .

Here's a sample of the results for "New Zealand".

That results from that query are rather dubious (non existant when I enter New Zealand which is where I a from). – slugster Oct 14 '11 at 22:15
@slugster Did you capitalize it? I get 1205 rows; you're #7 – Michael Mrozek Oct 14 '11 at 22:17
Ahhh, ok - I tried lowercase & proper case, never realised it had to be uppercase. I guess I'm too used to doing case and collation insensitive text searches, that will teach me. – slugster Oct 15 '11 at 0:13
