Tsunami Mapper - Visualize a Tsunami in Your Area

Tsunami Mapper is a visualization creation tool built upon the Google Maps platform. Using Tsunami Mapper you can quickly measure how large an area a tsunami would affect if it hit your community. To use Tsunami Mapper just enter your location then enter a wave height and direction.

Applications for Education
Tsunami Mapper could be a neat tool for showing students how a tsunami could impact their communities. Students can experiment with wave height and direction to see how those variables could affect the impact of a tsunami.
