Quick Quake

Our first iOS app was a rapid, clever and fun way to locate earthquakes. It’s a great educational tool to show how seismologists analyse seismograms to calculate the location and magnitude of an earthquake.

Download Quick Quake from the App Store and try it out using the included demo data.

A long history of earthquake software development

Over 45 years ago, the SRC was founded upon the development earthquake analysis software. It all started using PDP-11 computers to drive our EQLOCL (EarthQuake LOCation for Local events) program, whose core algorithms are still used in our modern day software.

We progressed to developing software for the Mac Classic operating system, then went cross-platform with our Java-based applications eqWave and eqFocus, both of which have been replaced by Waves.

The core of our observatory data management system is eqServer which is built on Linux and is totally web based. It shows us the status of our seismograph network, displays real time data full screen, notifies us automatically when an earthquake is detected, and simplifies the process of retrieving data from our archive.
