About this app

EQInfo shows earthquake information world-wide. Information can be filtered by region, magnitude and agency. It provides system notifications and social media sharing options.

EQInfo was conceived and implemented by the expert developers of SeisComP3, http://www.gempa.de, a software platform used by most geophysical institutes in the world to automatically detect and locate earthquakes.

EQInfo integrates seamlessly with your Raspberry Shake personal seismograph, http://raspberryshake.org, to bring you up-to-the-minute earthquake announcements including waveform snippets from your very own Raspberry Shake. In doing so, EQInfo accesses the largest IoT citizen-scientist earthquake detection network in the world to bring you high fidelity earthquake information, http://raspberryshake.net/stationview/.

EQInfo now lets you submit "Did you feel it" reports from your mobile device. In doing so, everyone can help to better assess the impact that an earthquake might have in their community.

The following features are supported:

1. List of latest earthquakes showing magnitude, region, origin time, direction/distance to the earthquake epicenter and earthquake monitoring agency
2. Earthquake details including overview map and multiple solutions from different agencies
3. Map of latest earthquakes
4. Submission and displaying of felt-reports
5. Visualization of earthquake waveforms from the Raspberry Shake network
6. Sharing of event information via social media
7. Define multiple filters for the earthquake information, filter by magnitude, depth, time and region
8. Configuration of data sources, update intervals, geolocation and unit of measurement
9. Background updates and notifications

The following agencies provide information to EQInfo:

- Raspberry Shake Citizen-Scientist Network, http://raspberryshake.org
- GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences, http://geofon.gfz-potsdam.de
- European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), http://www.emsc-csem.org

A priority list for the agencies can be defined, taking care of the aggregation of information.

EQInfo tries to minimize both the data volume and update time. Push messages are used if supported by the data provider.

The probably most professional "earthquake app" (shows waveform stream with frequency band & filtering, supports various agencies, allows setting multiple filters to cover any area(s), neat map incl. felt reports, etc.). Tried several other apps, but this is the most sleek one - especially after the update (Thanks!). A news section would be nice to make it complete, e.g. fed by a news crawler, or damage reports from significant events, etc. PS: the 3.0.0 update sets all depth filters to >700km, resulting in 0 found events.

System theme detection is not working correctly, the automatic detection said and applied the light theme when my device is set to dark theme. I just manually selected dark theme as a work around. Overall would be 5 stars once that is fixed, love the earthquake list and app overall.

App stopped working on the 2nd. What's the deal? Uninstalled it and reinstalled it several times. Didn't help. Not showing any quakes since 7/2.
