Google Maps & Silverlight Earthquake Map


Korean Silverlight developers HugeFlow have created this earthquake Google Map using Microsoft's alternative to Flash. The map shows the latest earthquake data from around the world.

The earthquake data comes from the US Geological Society Earthquake and Hazards Program. The latest earthquakes are listed in the map side-panel in order of magnitude. Clicking on the listed earthquakes in the panel will centre the map on the chosen incident.

As well as viewing the earthquake data in Google Maps there is the option to switch to Bing or Yahoo Maps.
