As most of you know, we announced a while back that we were working on some exciting new things for the website, these will be out for user testing in a few months, in the meantime here is a sneak peak...
Introducing the GeoNet smart-phone App...
It has some really cool features and our team of geeks are adding new things all the time! As you can see on the pic to the right ->
it is showing earthquakes from as little as '9 minutes ago' - so yes that means you can find out (roughly) how big etc an earthquake was within a few minutes. It generally takes between 2-5minutes for a preliminary result and as more data becomes available the figures can change slightly (its similar to the system USGS use at the moment).
This pic on the left <-- shows some older events, but also the color coding, the higher the intensity the darker shade of red the event will be. So white = small, light red = felt, deep red = the big ones!
You can also click on each event for more info (links to the www), map, refresh the event and share it.
So i hope you all enjoy this sneak peak, by the time it is released it will probably have even more neat functions!
NB: at the moment it will just be Android, but we do want / and will be working on an 'i' friendly App.
