Moving Earth

Try out this map widget to get out into the world faster.

When I was teaching, one of my favorite subjects was science, specifically earth science. I recently found Moving Earth, a little web tool/widget that allows you to view on a map the latest earthquakes around the world. The tool presents the magnitude, location and time of the latest quakes. The widget generates html code so that you can include this map in your own page. A great addition to any student research page. The information comes from the United States Geological Survey’s (USGS) Earthquake Hazards Program.

Next Tip: TBA
