An engaging and easily understandable visualisation of the ground force acceleration of a seismic event.

What's happening

This project was implemented in September 2017.

The aim of EQRV

The aim is to improve the timeliness, quality, and education of the public around seismic events, as well as to provide a quick and easy-to-understand visualisation that will enable rapid prioritisation of building inspections.

How EQRV works

The programme will provide an engaging and easily understandable visualisation of the ground force acceleration of a seismic event that will enable:

  • near real-time building assessment information for Council facilities (enabling prioritisation of inspections)
  • visualisation on the Christchurch SmartView platform for public viewing, as well as providing indicative information for building owners who don’t have permanent monitoring solutions and/or rapid access to engineers.
