Living in southern California and having lived in Los Angeles, the threat of earthquakes is normal. With heavy news coverage of earthquakes these last few weeks, I decided to put together a quick Xcelsius visualization. 15 minutes of research and Xcelsius work led to a Google Map that displays a live XML feed of worldwide earthquakes. Dragging the slider will filter out eathquakes under the user specified magnitude. If anyone has any ideas of some interesting data that I should mashup with the earthquake data feel to share with the group and I will see what I can do to quickly integrate it.
I have included the source files so you can see how it was built.
