Google Maps has updated its aerial photography of Christchurch, capturing a snapshot of the city's recovery.

The new images of Christchurch were taken in April last year but are already out of date in many cases.

The high-resolution images show many empty central-city sites and buildings that have since been demolished. Radio Network House in Worcester St, the Westpac building in High St and the Farmers' parking building in Gloucester St have been demolished since the aerial photographs were taken.

The Re:Start mall stands out as a flash of colour in the city centre. Temporary venues in Hagley Park and marks left on the grass from last year's World Buskers Festival are also visible.
