Geonet’s New Website

Geonet has invited feedback on its new website. The completely revamped website went live on April 12th, and Geonet has now posted a news item asking for visitors’ feedback.

The dramatic change to the website has caused some consternation amongst site visitors, and some Wild Land readers have contacted me with their concerns and first impressions. Where I have been able to verify their comments, these have been passed on to Geonet today. However, it will be necessary for Geonet site users to contact Geonet directly to ensure that their comments are taken on board.

The biggest disappointment is the loss of the ability to print a single sheet showing a map of an earthquake’s location, as well as details about the event.

Most of the old features are there, but the dramatic increase in site content can make them hard to find.

Here are some useful links that visitors might like to bookmark to make access to the Geonet website faster.

Seismic drums-
The composite of seismic drums can be found here.

Volcano Watch –
The composite page showing the latest image and seismic drum for the volcanos can be found here.

Felt earthquakes –
People who feel an earthquake will find a link associated with each quake report which allows them to report their experience of the event. However, it can take a while for information about a quake to be posted on the website. If you wish to report a quake that is not listed on the Geonet website, the form can be found here.

There is, of course, a lot of new content on the website and various items will be featured on Wild Land over the coming weeks.
