Last year I worked with CBS News, Google Earth, and a programmer, Andrew Rogers, who works for Neopolitan a company associated with Google. The result is now available. You first have to install Google Earth (http://earth.google.com) which is free. Then click on:

http://seismic.cbsnews.google.neopolitan.com/cbs/earthquake_public.kml

If you don't see earthquakes at first, go to the top of the screen and click on the right-end of the time arrow to make them appear in time sequence.

    As Bob Peterson has observed, the earthquake data is out of date. I will contact the person in charge to see if he can give the system a kick.

    Sorry, I should have done that before sending out the note.

    Alan,

    This is great. Thank you for the information.

    I notice the earthquake data is a month old. Will this become more current or was this a one time shot at intergrating earthquake data on the google earth map?

    As promised, I contacted the person in charge of the Earthquakes on Google Earth. He is aware of the EQ out-of-date problem but is deep into some other applications right now. But he intends to make some improvements to take advantage of Google Earth Version 4.0 features and fix the network problem that caused the out-of-date. So, stay tuned. I'll send out a notice when things are working.

    In the meantime, if you downloaded Google Earth, be sure to experiment with it. It is a fantastic program.

    For example, browse over to New York City or any major city and then tip the viewing angle. You'll see all the the buildings in 3-D. You can then "fly" down between them! Or, turn the topology on and fly among the mountains of Colorado.
