Measuring Earthquakes – Web 2.0 Style!

By Brian | July 30, 2008 | Share on Facebook

Los Angeles had a 5.4 magnitude earthquake yesterday.  There are geological sites all over the web if you want information, but I found this page at the U.S. Geological Survey site particularly interesting.  It asks people who felt the quake to fill out a web form that includes their location, the amount of shaking and the amount of damage.  As of this writing, they’ve had almost 40,000 respondents, which produces are pretty accurate zip-by-zip map of the quake.

I wonder what Richter would think…
