CISN Display Software

CISN Display Installation

Version 1.7

CISN Display provides reliable delivery of real-time earthquake information, including rapid notification and ShakeMaps to critical end users.

System requirements:
This program requires a username/password account to connect to a CISN-supported QuakeWatch Server.  If you do not have one, please request an user account.

This program requires that Java 1.6 or later be installed.  To check if Java is installed or to download the latest version, click here.

Installation options:
If you are experiencing problems or have questions, click here to contact the CISN Administrator.

Choose the directions corresponding to your operating system below.



Microsoft Windows:
Windows 32-bit:
Click here to download the installer and select "Run" to download and run the installer.

Windows 64-bit:
Click here to download the installer and select "Run" to download and run the installer.

(If a "Run" option is not available, save the installer file to a folder, locate the installer file, and double-click on the CISN_Display_windows_#_#_#_#.exe installer file.)  Note:  Administrator-level access is needed for the installation.

An older version of the installer is available here.

Note:  The Mac OS X Gatekeeper settings may need to be modified to allow the CISN Display installer to operate.  Administrator-level access may be needed for the installation. In some cases issues have been resolved by installing the Java JDK (not JRE) -- the Java JDK is available here.  (An alternate installer is available here, and a previous Mac OS X installer for CISN Display, which may be better for older versions of OS X, is available here.)
