    "Eye-opening view of the world's recent tectonics"

    March 30, 2011  |   By plusaf


    easy to install, run and view. colorful graphics and slide-bars to select magnitudes, time spans and other options work quite well.

    3-d globe view is very intuitive


    .suggest that all check-boxes [such as "islands"] be auto-saved when it's closed.
    .it's not VERY intuitive about how to rotate or incline the view, and a button for "stop" or "hold" would be great, too!
    .multiple events are hard to tell apart


    a great addition to my desktop, given the amazing amount of seismic activity after the Big One off the Japanese coast. provides an amazingly quick and easy view of activity for the past week, and would be a great science aid in schools!
