Earthquake Monitor v2.0.1 released

Dear readers,

2 weeks ago I have released v2.0.0 of the earthquake monitor. A lot has changed in this release.

Today v2.0.1 is released with some little bug fixes!

  • Added a new variable {tsunami}. When enabled in menu and added to the template it shows a tsunami icon when a major event in an oceanic region has occured.
  • Added a new variable {type} that will display the type of event (earthquake ,quarry, chemical explosion e.t.c.)
  • Added shortcode [eqmonitor] to add (multiple) earthquake lists in pages or posts (more details in the Shortcode examples and parameters section of this readme)
  • Switched to Semantic Versioning MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH
  • All links that take care of JSON data-exchange are now HTTPS (SSL)
  • All links to PHP documentation are now HTTPS
  • Adjusted the yellow pager color to be a bit more darker (and readable on white backgrounds) (This can be altered in the CSS)
  • You can now use this widget multiple times on the same site. Each widget has an unique identifier and uses it’s own unique cache.

You can try it out here : https://nl.wordpress.org/plugins/earthquakemonitor

Oh, and here is a live example of the shortcode that has been added.

I am going to add some new features in a future release. Not yet sure which new features or when it will be released, but i will look into the possibilities.

Hooray again 🙂

PAGER (Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response) background

PAGER (Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response) is an automated system that produces content concerning the impact of significant earthquakes around the world, informing emergency responders, government and aid agencies, and the media of the scope of the potential disaster. PAGER results are generally available within 30 minutes of a significant earthquake, shortly after the determination of its location and magnitude. However, information on the extent of shaking will be uncertain in the minutes and hours following an earthquake and typically improves as additional sensor data and reported intensities are acquired and incorporated into models of the earthquake’s source.

Corresponding fatality thresholds for yellow, orange, and red alert levels are 1, 100, and 1,000, respectively. For damage impact, yellow, orange, and red thresholds are triggered by estimated losses reaching $1 million, $100 million, and $1 billion respectively.

Further this is the changelog :

 

  • Need PHP v5.3 or higher
  • If the earthquake is located in the middle of no-where (not in or near a city or area) it will display the Flinn-Engdahl Region name. This prevents empty rows with only a magnitude showing.
  • Added optional display of PAGER (Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response) color codes. ( See http://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/pager/ )
  • Bug fix when names with ‘ appeared in TITLE link.
  • Prefixed function-names to be more Unique.
  • JSON Feed error is only visible in source code (so it won’t destroy layout)
  • Cache function improved (now using database instead of /tmp directory)
  • Automatic refresh cache when feed properties are changed.
  • New screenshots frontend and backend.
  • Uninstall script present.
  • Various readme.txt adjustments.
