USGS Using Google Earth for Historic Documentary on 1906 Quake

The US Geological Survey (USGS) has released a press advisory in advance of a video conference to be broadcast live 06-April-2006 at 10:00 AM PDT. The advisory says they will be demoing a "Virtual Tour of the 1906 earthquake" which will be released to allow the "public an opportunity to interactively view both historic information and up-to-the-minute science and hazard information on the most damaging earthquake in U.S. history". This was done for the 1906 Earthquake Centennial Alliance (the anniversary is April 18 according to the Wikipedia story on the quake). A link to the video is provided in the advisory and a link to the future archived copy of it is provided as well.

Thanks to Gary at Ask.com for e-mailing me about this.

    You can get better earthquake data using World Wind with the earthquake plug-in.

    I haven't seen the plug-in yet, but I can't imagine the data is better considering it is coming from the same source. Does the World Wind earthquakes link back to the USGS pages? I guess I need to check it out...
