Visualizing tsunamis is all about capturing cause and effect. By Tim Sinnott, Interaction Designer / Senior Cartographer, GreenInfo Network For the past couple of years, cartographers and developers at GreenInfo Network have been working closely with the Google Earth team to design and build data layers for users to explore in the Voyager feature.
These layers take advantage of the global canvas available in Earth, allowing us to visualize timely, compelling, even beautiful datasets, and provide educational context to users who want to dive into scientific topics. We’ve visualized Seafloor Age, Seafloor Depth, Sea Surface Temperature, and Global Volcanoes. In late 2018, we began to work on a layer showing tsunamis around the world over the past several centuries. This is one of the most complex data layers we’ve yet built for Google Earth, and you can explore it today.
