Google Realtime Global-Incidents Map

Global_incidennts_map_2You have two choices to check the world for problem spots, manmade or natural. The manmade, as you'll see, far outnumber the natural events.

The first, The Global Incidents Map, a Google map mashup, shows realtime terror and danger incidents around the world. You can select by previous day or week. Not a bad idea for the globe trotter or vacation planner. Listed below is a short, scary sample of yesterday's events around the world.

JAPAN - Shock waves run through Japan after mayor shot dead
RUSSIA - bomb kills businessman - injures 4
CALIFORNIA - Small Bomb Explodes in Morro Bay
THAILAND - More bombings and beheadings in Thailand
NIGERIA - 25 Militants Killed in Nigeria
BANGLADESH - 25 suspected militants arrested in Bangladesh

The other option is a screensaver updated every twenty minutes from Our Planet from Space, which uses NASA NEO maps (image above) and overlays manmade and natural incidents, volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and more.
