Canterbury Earthquake Digital Archive
The UC CEISMIC Digital Archive is designed to preserve the memories, experiences and knowledge of people of the Canterbury region by building federated access to a broad range of earthquake-related research material, gathered by leading New Zealand cultural heritage and research organisations
UC CEISMIC’s role in the Resilience Network is to provide IT infrastructure to connect the many disparate documents, images and datasets that have been created by academia, local and central government, and community and commercial organisations. In doing so it provides a solid data platform for future growth and the delivery of Resilience Network services from both the UC CEISMIC Programme team, the Quake Centre, and the Centre for Risk, Resilience and Renewal.
Earthquake-related information and resources held within the digital archives of consortium members and affiliated content partners is available through the UC CEISMIC website to everyone in the community. In addition, we have developed the QuakeStudies research repository at the University of Canterbury to provide for additional archival needs and source further content. QuakeStudies is managed by an on-campus Programme Office and is designed to support resilience-related research in universities and government agencies across New Zealand and around the world.
