QuakeMap keeps original data links.
Geocaches and earthquakes on the map are linked to their original web pages, allowing you to reach detailed original information with a single click.
Create your own Annotated Trips with web links.
You can edit GPS track logs and associate web links with selected trackpoints. These points become visible links on the map - clicking on them brings up the browser with associated web page or picture. If you have your photo collection on the Web, make a track log with your comments, create links to the pictures and share your trip (as a .gpx file) with your friends. See a sample here.
QuakeMap allows you to take aerial and topo maps on the road.
After you preview aerial or topo maps while connected to the Internet, you can run the program again - now away from the network connection. A powerful Pre-Load function allows you to load aerial/topo tiles for selected area. QuakeMap works with cached maps on the road - panning, zooming in, positioning with GPS.

What states are covered by QuakeMap? Aerial and Topo coverage depends on Microsoft TerraServer and is available for most of the continental United States. As for relief maps, currently California, Nevada, Idaho, Colorado, Montana, Utah, Wyoming and Hawaii are covered in detail. Click here to see QuakeMap Coverage Map. Within the "high coverage" area you will be able to zoom in to any point, up to resolution of 150ft/pixel on the relief maps. The rest of the world is covered at reasonable resolution, so that locating earthquakes is easy and precise.

|Where does the seismic data come from? The list of recent earthquakes http://neic.usgs.gov/neis/bulletin is a service provided by the National Earthquake Information Service (NEIS) of the U. S. Geological Survey. The NEIS is located at the National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) in Golden, Colorado, USA which also serves as World Data Center A for Seismology. The NEIS is responsible for reporting on moderate to large earthquakes throughout the U. S. and large earthquakes worldwide. Other source of information is Southern California Earthquake Center http://www.scecdc.scec.org/recenteqs/Quakes/quakes0.html. QuakeMap connects to NEIS and other web pages directly from your desktop.|
|How soon can I see an earthquake on the map after it happened? QuakeMap will have information about an earthquake as soon as it polls its data sources (e.g. the NEIS "quake list" - a near-real-time bulletin of the NEIS). NEIS has a formal publication criteria for the "quake list", and performs thorough verification before publisthing an earthquake. Local "quake lists" use automatic publishing processes and can be much more responsive than official NEIS "quake list", so the earthquakes may appear on your screen with only 5-10 minutes delay. QuakeMap needs to poll the data sources as often as possible to eliminate additional delay.|

The informational services delivering the data do not guarantee uninterrupted service. Mapping servers used by QuakeMap are not guaranteed to deliver uninterrupted service. Due to complexity of the earthquake phenomena and possible errors in collecting and processing data an expert opinion is recommended to evaluate all aspects of a particular earthquake, as well as to evaluate the risks associated with earthquakes activity in an area.
