Mapping the Central Italy earthquake (2016)
An earthquake, measuring 6.2 ± 0.016 on the moment magnitude scale, hit Central Italy on 24 August 2016 at 03:36:32 CEST (01:36 UTC). Its epicentre was close to Accumoli, approximately 75 km (47 mi) southeast of Perugia and 45 km (28 mi) north of L'Aquila. There were severe damage especially in the town of Amatrice, near the epicentre, and in Accumoli and Pescara del Tronto.

That sad day I tried to quickly map the earthquake with a simple map. I dowloaded the data that I needed on INGV's site (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia). Here you can find a costantly uptated list of all the shocks. You can choose the area in which you are interested, between Italy, Mediterranean and World. This site is particularly useful in case of italian events. 

I used the Tableau's mapbox service to customize my map, in an attempt to show all the comunes involved the best I can. This dataviz is really simple. A map in which every circle means a shock and is size the magnitude of the shock.
