The last 30 days of world earthquake maps for wrapping onto spheres or
for use with a globe projector device (e.g. OmniGlobe, Magic Planet).

The most recent file should be today.jpg, below.
The JPG versions are made 8 times a day, and are about 800K each in size.
The entire last 30 days can be grabbed using the ZIP files,
or get individual day images below.

Image filename format:      eqmap[year][day of year][hour of day]_[day #].jpg

The year, day and hour refer to when the image was made.
The 'day #' is which of the 30 days, starting 30 days ago, the map shows.
For example: 'eqmap201511815_0001.jpg' is a map made on day 118 (Tue Apr 28) of 2015 at 15:00 hours. It is the first of the series, which means it portrays the quakes that occurred 30 days before that date. 'eqmap201511815_0030.jpg' shows the day entire series was made, also offered as 'today.jpg' for convenience.
