|You can view live data with the Online Seismograph|
The Labin Online Seismograph has been tested on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Linux, using Netscape 4.7 or newer, and Internet Explorer 5.5 or newer. You need the Java 1.2 runtime environment (or newer) installed on your computer to use the seismograph. Java 1.2 can be freely downloaded from Sun Microsystems. The seismograph is best viewed on a monitor with a resolution of 800 by 600, or better.
The online seismograph was designed and programmed by Jonathan Labin , a graduate of the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Jon has written Java, Perl, Python, C-flavored, VisualBasic and CGI programs for Maryland Geological Survey. His Java and Perl scripts are employed to present seismic data in a graphical format for web browsers. The seismograph uses a Java applet which is downloaded into, and executed by, you web browser. This applet draws data from the seismic network and displays it on a stripchart-like, animated image.
