Christchurch after the quake, aerial mapping available

Graphic aerial photographs recorded two days after the devastating February 22nd earthquake in Christchurch, have just been released.

Land Information New Zealand have uploaded the images that Police, Civil Defence and emergency services used to assess damage in the city.

"It's important to remember that this imagery is a snapshot of the way Christchurch looked a couple of days after the earthquake," says Geoff Howard, New Zealand's Chief Topographer. "It's good that this information is now available to all of New Zealand and the world."
