Abstract: During January 1997 the Christchurch-Hokitika and ''megametre'' GPS networks were remeasured. The aims of the 1997 measurements were as follows. 1. Repeat Christchurch-Hokitika GPS network. Measurement of the ''megametre'' network to be undertaken simultaneously with the South Island network. 2. Add new survey points in the vicinity of the Hope fault/Alpine fault intersection. 3. Geological and tectonic mapping in the same area. 4. Resurvey about 20 points of the 1994 Marlborough fault zone GPS network. 5.
