Mapping Disastrous Australia

If you live on the eastern seaboard of Australia my advice is to immediately pack your bags and move to Geraldton on the west coast. Project Doom is a map of natural, man made and transport disasters which have occurred in Australia. If the map reveals only one thing it is that the east coast of Australia suffers more than its fair share of disasters.

The map shows the location of disasters in the country since 1967. You can refine the type of disasters from the menu on the left of the map. If you select a marker on the map you can read details of the mapped disaster, including the number of resulting deaths.

Once you have settled in Geraldton you can view the Project Doom source code, which is available on GitHub.
