New App: Epicenter

Earthquake apps are interesting and a great use of the globe.  Here's a new one using WhirlyGlobe-Maply.

I wonder where the plates collide.

The App

Epicenter was put together by Jess Taylor at Blue Rocket.  It's got a nice interface, letting you animate recent earthquakes over time.  The bathymetry really pops.

Biggest earthquake of late.

What I love about earthquake apps is that they're pure data visualization.  No one's going to get rich off one and the data's free.

Anyway, go check this one out.

State -o- The Toolkit

WhirlyGlobe-Maply is chugging along at speed.  2.4 is nearing completion on iOS and 3.0 is underway on Android.  And I'm busy.  So very, very busy.
