Flat ocean

I like this app, but really an earthquake map should show the topography of the ocean floor, not leave it blank as though we are looking at the top of the ocean at sea level. When there’s an earthquake on a mid-ocean ridge I want to be able to exactly where it was in relation to other ridges or junctions or subduction zones. This app is missing details of 2/3 of the world. Please update to include the ocean floors because I do like this app, and would like to give it more stars

Great App!

I’m a geologist and I will use this for work. Love that it gives me all the USGS information on my phone and it works with the Apple Watch as well! Saves me from having to open a browser and find the right url ... etc!

Love it!

You guys have done an outstanding job in producing such a complete picture and description of the seismic events.
In my area(Ecuador) we are in very active Seismic and Volcanic zone and I sure will visiting this site often.
