Christchurch Aerial View on Google Maps

Christchurch Post-Earthquake Aerial Photos

NZ Aerial Mapping Ltd, at the request of the NZ Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management (MCDEM), flew a Rockwell Commander 690 at 5,500 feet over Christchurch two days after the 22nd February earthquake, capturing imagery of the damage suffered by the city. As you can see from the shot of Christchurch Cathedral above the imagery provides an incredibly close aerial view of the city.

Koordinates has created this Google Map that lets you view the aerial imagery on Google Maps. Using Google Maps means that you are able to find locations in Christchurch using the underlying map tiles and zoom in on the new aerial imagery.
