Japan: The Earthquake & The Tsunami [infographic]

Japan:The Earthquake & The Tsunami is a good infographic design from the team at DigitalSurgeons.com.  I like the simple color scheme, and the mix of different types of visuals for the different pieces of data.  Maps, bar charts, icon grids and a ruler all help put the currently available information into perspective.

The bottom also lists some of the major support links for people that would like to help.

Thanks to Peter for sending in the link!

I like it, but there was an opportunity to educate on the intensity of the quake with the visualization of the earthquake magnitude. The Richter scale is logarithmic. Comparing the Japanese 9.0 with, say, the 6.3 New Zealand eathquake, 7.0 Haiti earthquake, and 8.8 Chile earthquake on a linear scale would give people a sense of just how much energy the quake produced.
