The CISN is pleased to announce the availability of CISN Display. CISN Display is an integrated Web enabled earthquake notification system, designed for emergency management 24/7 operations centers. The application provides users with maps of real-time seismicity, and automatically provides access to Web-related earthquake products such as ShakeMaps. CISN Display also offers an open source GIS mapping tool that allows users to plot freely available layers of public highways, roads and bridges, as well as private layers of organizational-specific infrastructure and facilities information.
Version 1.0 was released on Dec 8th, 2004. As part of the Version 1.0 release, the CISN has brought 2 additional servers online (for a total of 4) to provide reliable access to earthquake information.
As part of this release, the CISN has implemented a login service on the QuakeWatch servers. This change is to allow the CISN to manage system resources so that critical users in the emergency response community will have access to the data. In particular, because of this change, all Beta testers of CISN display should follow the steps for account registration to set up an account.
CISN Display is designed to provide earthquake information for emergency response. First-responders, organizations with critical lifelines and infrastructure, and emergency responders are invited to register for an account.
