Natural disaster follow up using iApps

Following my Twitter and Flipboard post about Wed. 11 April earthquake in SE Asia I then followed up with some research using a variety of apps that I have used in the classroom on my iPad.

Earthbuzz shows the number of aftershocks in the area and in that week dominated the distribution of quakes globally.

Quakes then showed on a more localised map the distribution and magnitude of events.

PDC World Disaster Alerts then gave additional information links and even provided tsunami impact mapping. I had not realised the depth of detail within this app previously and will be using it more extensively in future units on Tectonics at Key Stage 3 and 4 for Geography lessons.
