3D Earthquake Info

While digging around for the last blog entry, I found a 3D VRML dataset of a year's worth of earthquakes under Japan. A couple of screen shots are above. You can see the subduction zone at the eastern edge of the isles extraordinarily clearly.

I'm using Firefox on Fedora Core 4 Linux. The FreeWRL FC3 RPM installed cleanly and works pretty well for VRML, but doesn't seem to do X3D properly. Be warned, this might take a couple of minutes to load; be patient.

This is a great use of 3D graphics.
