Pakistan quake zone gets dynamic overlays

Kathryn Cramer reports on still further improved overlays for Pakistan’s areas affected by the quake. These overlays, also made by the Global Connections Project, are dynamic, in that the level of zoom determines their detail, to preserve bandwidth.

But she also writes engagingly on some of the local “fondness” for hill writing, and adds illustrations. Another great read.

  1. Asia Quake in Depth

    More than 73,000 people were killed and as many as 2.5 million people were left homeless by the 7.6 magnitude earthquake that struck Pakistan-administered Kashmir on 8 October.

    Most of the people who lost their homes are now living in tents or makeshift shelters. According the WFP, 2.3 million people will need food assistance for two to four months.

    The situation remains critical as emergency teams struggle to cope with the sheer numbers of people injured, enormous logistical challenges, and deteriorating weather conditions.

    Senior international aid officials have described the relief operation in Pakistan as the most difficult the world has ever known. Funding shortages are compounding the problems faced by the aid effort.
