Time-Lapse of the Christchurch Earthquake

Christchurch Quake Map

The Christchurch Quake Map uses Google Maps to display an animated timeline of the recent New Zealand earthquake and its aftershocks.

The map plots earthquake data from GeoNet. The size of the circles animated on the map represent the level of magnitude of the shocks and the colour represents the focal depth.

You can pause and resume the animation. You can also rewind to the beginning of the animation or slow down the playback. The "Jump to" links beside the map allow you to start playback 3, 6, 9, 12 or 24 hours before the current time, so you can view the latest tremors.
