The Live Earthquake Tracker

Mapbox's Live Earthquake Tracker is a nice mapped visualization of the latest earthquake data from the USGS. The map allows you to view the locations and the size of the most recent seismic activity around the world on a global map.

Using the drop-down menu in the map sidebar you can choose to view the last 24 hours, the last week or the last month of earthquake activity. The sidebar also provide links and satellite views of the three latest earthquakes and the three strongest earthquakes within your chosen time frame.

The map itself shows the epicenter of each earthquake and its magnitude. You can also hover over each earthquake displayed on the map to view details of the selected earthquake's magnitude and depth.
