Earthquake Prone Buildings in Wellington, New Zealand

Last week, Peter Dunne. member of parliament and leader of United Future (a New Zealand Political party)  got his hands on a list of earthquake prone buildings from Wellington City Council.  He published the PDF file on his Facebook page.

I’ve converted this list to a CSV file and uploaded it to a Google Fusion Table,  to geolocate the data and output it to a map.

  • Red placemarks represent earthquake-prone buildings where a notice under Section 124 of the Building Act 2004 has been issued requiring the building be strengthened.
  • Blue markers indicate buildings designated potentially earthquake prone.

To embed the map elsewhere you can use this code:
