Description

Zoom and spin your way around the world with this fully immersive 3D Earthquake display app. Earthquake 3D uses animated graphics to show you the "big picture" and visualize large amounts of Earthquake data quickly and easily. Go where no seismogram has gone before with a fascinating and mesmerizing look at the world's Earthquakes. - Eight different Earth display types that include population and tectonic plate maps. - Four different custom view 'presets'. - Solid and wire frame 3D views with transparent Earth ability. - A Sequencer that shows Earthquakes as they occurred using animation loops. - Control Speed, Decay, and Sound of Earthquake sequencer loops. - Includes 4000+ years of Historic Earthquake information. - Data from USGS, European EMSC, British Geological Survey, and New Zealand Geonet. - Current worldwide Volcano activity display.. - Includes DEX depth visualization. - Individual quake indicator 'flags' that show magnitude or depth. - Tap on individual indicator 'flags' to show details for each Earthquake. - Earthquake details include Local Maps, Local News, and Advanced Seismic Information. - Can import up to four external Earth images that are supplied by the user. - Uses "point and drag" to position and spin the Earth. Uses "pinching" for zoom. - Filter Earthquakes by magnitude and age with slider controls. - Earthquake angle indicators. - Automatic Refresh Timer - Retina enabled. - And much more... In addition to providing several 'live' sources of current Earthquake information, an Atlas database is also included. The Atlas database shows over 4000 years of Historic Earthquake information. This database (updated periodically) is built-in to Earthquake 3D and is available even when you are off-line. This edition of Earthquake 3D represents a third generation of this very popular computer program. Started in 2003 as a desktop application, it has become a widely adopted standard for video presentations and visualizations of Earthquake information. This latest edition brings new features and updates to this modern classic. Whether you are exploring the geo sciences, or you just want to find out if you felt that last quake, this app will keep you up to date with the latest Earthquake information.

    App needs more options in settings. Very generic. Talk to USGS for more ideas. I will say one thing I like the pictures of earth and the disco colors. Awesome when ur at a party. Best of luck!!
  • Can’t set certain location. Only need for California, not the whole world.

    Following Dutchsinse for years, I was always disappointed that I couldn’t follow along on my Mac. This is truly the next best thing. There’s a detailed tutorial which is a great help in the first setup and a great FAQ for new users. Most importantly, I can choose my data feed. I would highly recommend this app. It is worth every penny.
  • Almost excellent

    An elegant programming feat. Now if it just had the topographic view, labeled #3 on the PC version. Gives added value for the price.
  • Connection Issues

    I bought this app just yesterday. It appeared to be updating just fine, yet 24 hours later, there is a major connection issue. EQ data from yesterday is not appearing any longer and most of today's activity is absent. I find this very disappointing considering I paid for this app. Something needs to be resolved. Buyer beware!
  • Awesome!!!

    Great app!!!! Thank you Dutch for letting me know about this piece of software. Your work is much needed in a world full of deceit and guile. Keep up the good work and thanks again.
  • Disappointed with its limitations

    Very limited compared to the Windows paid version. Infrequent updates, low-res maps even with a Retina display & only a few data feeds is very disappointing. Didn't expect it to have all of the Windows bells & whistles for $7, but it is closer in features to the free Windows version. Three stars only because it is still useful.
  • Loving this app

    If you like to track quakes, you will love this! It has tons of options and adjustable views.
  • The amount of data available is staggering.

    Change your source feed to change your focus, and level of detail available. Filter by magnitude, and number of days in the past. Set visual indicators to display magnitude or depth of quake. Set globe to indicate tectonic plates, population centers (night view) or hollow globes to view impact on the antipode of site. Click on labels to get time, magnitude and depth and location of quakes, with links to detailed maps. Four "saved settings" views and the ability to step quickly through views. Historic data available by changing settings, as is volcano info. Absolutely the most flexible app for earthquakes.
  • PERFECT!!!
