EarthquakeVisualizer

Fetching and plotting earthquakes from the USGS feed.

This Java application fetches earthquake data from the USGS website and puts the earthquakes on a map. The background imagery-composite of the map is delivered by the provider of Microsoft. The size and color of each marker reflects the magnitude of the earthquake represented. To prevent the map from being overloaded, a minimum threshold for the magnitude of the earthquakes shown can be set (by default set to 2.5).

Installation

Download the EarthquakeVisualizer.jar file and launch it as a normal application (tested on OSX and Windows). Alternatively download the src and lib folder and import it as a project in eclipse.

Usage

Start the programm and explore Earth's earthquake activity of the last week. By hovering over earthquakes additional information (place description, time and date) pops up, clicking on the map shows the current coordinates of the cursor in decimal degrees (WGS84). The map gets reloaded every 5 minutes.
