Earthquake! A Google Maps mashup

With earthquake incidents grabbing headlines this past week in Indonesia and Peru, Reto Meier is along with this timely Google Maps mashup called Earthquake! "A global earthquake mashup with a difference." Reto has this to say: "..I've drawn my influence from the Natural History Museum's real-time earthquake exhibit, so as well as showing the usual list of earthquake epicentres, I've overlaid the damage radius and the 'felt' radius. The result is a display of concentric circles around the world showing the relative power and reach of earthquakes as they happen. To get better coverage I've also integrated different earthquake feeds from the official surveyors in the US, Europe, and Australia." Reto notes that he made use of the Google Mashup Editor to create this mashup.
