Twitter Earthquake Explosion

This infographic made by Juan Pablo Campusano graphic designer from Chile, Santiago. It shows us a month of the Twitter explosion in Chile right after the earthquake hit the country. He had the experience to live it, and the Twitter community made a strong impact by delivering information an movilizing people to help the ones who received no help.

Sadly, to this day there are still lots of people without a place to live.

Christchurch Earthquake Maps

After the 2010 Canterbury Earthquake, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake near Christchurch, New Zealand, the region has been hit by hundreds of aftershocks - many of them widely felt around Christchurch, and some of which have caused further damage.


The Christchurch Quake Map on this website aims to present a time-lapse visualisation of the earthquake and its aftershocks, primarily to help those outside the affected area understand what those of us in Canterbury are experiencing. It plots earthquake data from GeoNet on a map using the Google Maps API, with the size of the circle denoting the magnitude (the higher the magnitude, the larger the circle) and the colour showing the focal depth (see the legend below the map).

Earthquake hazard map of the highest danger zones in the U.S

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) national seismic-hazard map, earthquake hazards exist throughout the United States. USGS national and regional seismic-hazard maps forecast the amount of shaking expected over specified time periods. Many parts of the Central and Eastern United States have moderate to high long-term hazard, even though they have not experienced recent large quakes. Successive updates of USGS seismic-hazard maps are used to revise building codes and are also widely used by structural engineers and government agencies. The next generation of such maps will provide time-dependent probabilities that take into account the effects of prior quake occurrence on future earthquake likelihood.
