Where are New Zealand’s seismographs located?

To make rapid locations of earthquakes, GNS Science (through the GeoNet project) owns and operates the national seismograph network.

A country-wide network of seismic stations transmit data to the GeoNet Data Management Centre (DMC) where it is analysed by automated processes.

You can check for any earthquakes recorded by New Zealand's seismographs over the last hour on Geonet's live map of the seismograph network.
