Economic Activity Heatmap in Greater Christchurch

CDC has prepared a composite indicator map of changes in economic activity over the seismic period. In order to produce the map, a number of data sources were explored for their ability to provide an indication of physical movements of business activity throughout the city.

The trends show a shift in activity generally from East to West. Transfer of activity from the central city is the most significant contributor to this trend, with many central city businesses relocating to commercial land in the West of the city.
