The 4 September 2010 Darfield (Canterbury) earthquake resulted in up to 5 metres of lateral slip along the previously unknown Greendale Fault (Figure 1) and associated ground surface displacements of up to about 2.5 metres within the surrounding region (Quigley et al., 2010, 2012; Beavan et al., 2010). Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) requires a way to correct and update the survey system for the effects of the earthquake.
