From search and rescue operations to a public information map, smart mapping technology has been used to provide unique insights into the Nepal earthquake tragedy.
Three interactive smart maps displaying search and rescue operations, public information and the history of local seismic activity have been released by Esri following the recent earthquakes which struck Nepal.
The Earthquake Public Information Map visualises the locations and intensities of the various quakes and aftershocks that struck the country, and includes eyewitness video and images from social media sites such as YouTube, Instagram and Twitter.
This map also features a continuously updated shakemap from the United States Geological Survey, which provides near-real-time information about ground motion and shake intensity.
The Mapping the 2015 Nepal Earthquake story map provides a 3D web scene of the area affected by the avalanche on Mount Everest, as well as information about rescue and relief operations and critical infrastructure.
Users can access this map to explore Nepal’s earthquake history and learn about the people impacted by seismic activity in the region.
The Nepal Earthquake Swipe Map, meanwhile, uses satellite imagery to compare various locations within the country, both before and after the event.
