Note... Due to Imagery shifts the exact location may 'drift' a little. So if the Placemark is not on the exact Building it is in within a few meters of it. Using the Historical Imagery (From September 2010 onwards) you can see a lot of the damaged areas
The Central city is still cordoned off from about 2 to 3 blocks out. It is difficult to get photos with-in that area as they are now. When I find some or can take them myself I shall link to them. But in many cases the area will just be a pile of rubble or cleared land.
See also the Credits and Sources Folder. This has the list of Credits for photos and Info used throughout this collection
This is work in progress and continually being updated
If there are any New Zealand users with Photos that I can make use of please contact me. I do have a few more sources that I have access to but have yet to use them. This is an enormous job with our City changing shape daily.
