The New World-wide Earthquake Locator

The World-Wide Earthquake Locator, developed at the University of Edinburgh, "aims to provide up-to-date information and detailed dynamic maps of earthquakes across the world within a maximum of 24 hours of their occurrence." Through online, interactive maps, users can determine the location, size, and time of recent earthquakes. While the authors concede that the prediction model is inaccurate, students and educators can utilize the forecasting tool to help understand the earthquake processes. By providing the current data as well as information on past earthquakes, the developers hope to increase the efficiency of disaster relief response and help scientists predict the occurrences of large, destructive geologic events.
