Earthquake 3D

CNET Editors' review

Earthquake 3D provides a fascinating look at recent seismic activity around the globe. While the program provides a great deal of information and options, it suffers from its complete lack of direction.

We were initially impressed with the interface. The controls all looked basic, but soon we discovered that the Help file didn't do more than give a description of the product, and some actions we wanted to perform were not intuitive enough. The program itself was a spinning globe with magnitudes and the traditional multiring circles indicating earthquakes. We appreciated how the control panel let us filter quakes by severity and changed the globe's look to better see the quakes. This all functioned great, but zooming in was impossible. We learned with ease how to rotate the globe using our mouse, but could not get a closer look, even though it's the first thing the description promised. After several fruitless minutes we grew frustrated and gave up. On a more interesting note, the program did have a feature that updated the globe with the newest quakes. But this wasn't enough to rescue this program from its unfortunate lack of direction.

Earthquake 3D is a freeware program. The program comes as a compressed file. Even though we loved most aspects of this program, its lack of direction makes it hard to recommend.

    "Fix to screen problem"

    February 18, 2014  |   By karnold002

    Version: Earthquake 3D 2.9

    Pros

    I had the same problem when I came across your problem description.

    To fix, delete c:\windows\eq3d.ini. Simple, old school. Took a while to find it though. Some basic doc would be nice.

    Cons

    No documentation on the basics of how this works or where its control files are.

    "half way works"

    November 23, 2013  |   By Kaychrystal

    Version: Earthquake 3D 2.9

    Pros

    USED TO BE... great! Used it for a couple years with no problem, You could set 5 different screens and save all the different settings, instead of starting from scratch each time you open it.
    Used to work, too.

    Cons

    I get the control panel part of the sae-up but I can't get the world pannel to see what is there. The only thing that works is the USGS button that takes me to the internet page.
    Totally extracted this program and re-installed.....THREE times! No change. This 'new' version is a bust for me.

    Summary

    I miss the old ...(working) edition. Sigh, not everything gets better in cyberland.
