It’s a mapstravaganza!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a map is worth a thousand numbers.  It’s much easier to get a quick scope of things by looking at a map than a long list of stats. So here’s a short list of great maps we’ve recently come across:

–  Earthquake Watch Map. Earthquakes around the world as they happen. (Thanks to the Longview Hills blog for the tip.)
Real-time, worldwide disaster alert map.  By Emergency Disaster Information Services. Includes everything from volcanoes to biohazards. (Thanks to Amanda Ripley’s website for the tip.)
Global disease alert Google Map. By the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences & Technology. (Thanks to John Solomon for the tip.)
Map of Red Cross Major Response Efforts Since April 1. (Thanks to Wendy and the folks at National HQ for making this.)
