CityViewAR is a mobile AR (augmented reality) application that allows people to see how the city was before the earthquakes and building demolitions.


Using an Android mobile phone the user can walk around the city and see life-sized virtual models of what the buildings looked like on site before they were demolished, and see pictures and written information. Hundreds of 3D models of key city buildings have been made available from architect Jason Mill of ZNO, while the Christchurch City Council and Historic Places Trust have provided photographs and building histories.
