2011 Japanese Tsunami Video Map

Sanna Dullaway has used the Google Maps My Maps option to create a 2011 Japanese Tsunami Video Map. The map includes over 120 videos of the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, mapped to where the videos were taken.

The videos really do help to convey the destruction the earthquake and resulting tsunami caused to Japan and the lives of those affected. The map itself helps to convey the scale of the disaster and the huge area of Japan affected.

The blue markers on the map indicate tsunami videos and red markers indicate earthquake videos. Sanna has even added paths to the map to show where witnesses were moving when a video was taken.
