Volunteers assisted in testing an application

In late 2016, Zizmos, a California based company, requested assistance from our volunteers in testing an application that detects earthquakes and provides seconds to minutes of warning before the onset of ground shaking. Tens of GISCorps volunteers downloaded the application and joined the network of smartphones and are now permanent, custom seismometers with the aim of detecting earthquakes and providing seconds to minutes of warning before the onset of ground shaking.
