Someone sent in this link to an interesting visualization of earthquake activity around Japan for the year of 2011. It starts off quiet, until the big earthquake that shook Japan and caused the nuclear “incident” that they are cleaning up to this day. Watch the video and it’s quite apparent that the massive earthquakes that […]
One of the winners at this summer’s SciDAC Visualization Night was an impressive visualization of a massive 8.0 earthquake on the San Andreas fault. The simulation follows the rapid expansion of an earthquake wave front on the San Andreas fault as it approaches the city of San Diego. The strongest motions correspond to a white […]
Combing through the massive amounts of data regarding this year’s massive 9.0 earthquake off the coast of Japan, researchers have found mountains of useful information. Visualizing it all usefully has proven tricky, but some new techniques coming out of the University of Alaska at Fairbanks show promise. “When the massive data set from Japan became […]
Japan has just suffered another 7.4 Earthquake a mere 100km from the previous location, and ESRI is already on the case with updated maps showing the location. Japan Earthquake and Tsunami – Map & Satellite Images | Disaster Relief & Support.
One enterprising VizWorld reader sent me a link to a nice Google Mashup of USGS Earthquake data, cataloging every major quake of the last century. The data is originally from USGS and was made available by someone as a spreadsheet. I updated it with information from Wikipedia, especially on 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. I also […]
Benjamin Hennig has created a new map visualizing areas hardest hit by Earthquakes from 2010BC to present, showing that the areas currently being hit hard by quakes really aren’t getting anything new. The database created by NOAA’s National Geophysical Data Center “contains information on destructive earthquakes from 2150 B.C. to the present that meet at […]
Over on Vimeo, folks at DataMarket.net have taken data published by the Icelandic Met Office and created a movie showing the earthquakes leading up to the eruption of in Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland in March 2010. They tell me that this is just the first of many visualizations they plan to make utilizing this Icelandic Earthquake data. […]
The San Francisco Department of Emergency Management has created a fun education tool to learn what to do in an earthquake.
