100 Years of Earthquakes in 3D
The Quake Map visualizes over 10,000 earthquakes from 1900 to July 2015 on a 3d globe. The application allows you to explore over one hundred years of seismic events with magnitudes of six or greater on the Richter scale.
The map includes a number of navigational options. The chart beneath the map shows the date and magnitude of each earthquake and allows you to filter the results shown on the globe by date. The side menu allows you to select to view earthquakes or nuclear explosions. You can also select to view the earthquakes with the highest fatalities or largest magnitude.
The information panel displays details about the seismic events which you have selected using the chart and side menu.
