Esri Japan earthquake and tsunami map shows video, Twitter, Flickr updates

Posted by Stephanie Clary

An interactive map of the Japan earthquake and tsunami by Esri incorporates social media updates along with news and seismic information.

The map allows users to view geotagged Twitter updates, YouTube videos and Flickr photos and search for specific hashtags or terms within each.

It also has a layer, which displays messages related to locating trapped people, Esri says.

Below is a screenshot of the map (the embed works best on a wider site). Interact and view the map here.
