When a city falls – Christchurch in 3D from 2011

by AEROmetrex_edit

It has been a few years since the tragic days of 2010-2011 when earthquakes almost flattened the beautiful city of Christchurch – New Zealand. A few documentaries have been made and the story of the people captured.

The model below captured using photogrammetry is a time capsule of how the city looked shortly after the earthquakes ( January 2013).

.The reality no special effects or exaggeration. There are collapsed buildings everywhere and a colourful tent city in the fringes. People are still piecing their lives together as the city pieces itself together.
