Visualize Earthquakes with Wikitude
Last year I found myself out in San Francisco for a week, at the time I got obsessed with checking earthquake reports on the web to see if there was any pattern or if I was likely to experience one. I never did but checking the reports became part of my daily ritual.
A new World for Wikitude has been released that helps users visualise earthquake data through augmented reality and a mobile device. The World shows users the last 7 days of earthquake activity and you’d be surprised just how much activity there is.
The data for the Wikitude World is recorded from worldwide sources so even here in the UK I was able to see earthquake activity taking place in Europe. As it turns out there was a mag 6.3 earthquake in Spain just a few days ago at 619 miles below the earth’s surface.
Fascinating stuff, it’s good to see augmented reality being used to help users visualize data in new ways.
The World is available now and is a featured World in the Wikitude browser, check it out and see just how many earthquakes are taking place around you.
