100 Years of Earthquakes [Wallpaper]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on July 5th, 2012

If loved the tornado-visualization we posted last month, this visualization of a century of earthquakes around the globe will be right up your alley.

Courtesy of the same designer behind the tornado tracks, John Nelson of IDV Solutions, this visualization captures 203,186 magnitude 4 and higher earthquakes that occurred between 1898 and 2003. Hit up the link below to grab a wallpaper-size copy from Flickr.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
