The service tracks over 15,000 earthquakes annually in and around New Zealand. It provides location and magnitude within 30 minutes for over 250 significant quakes felt across the region each year. Reporting stations detect events in the southwest Pacific Ocean but do not provide sufficiently accurate readings, so reports are limited to events in or closely adjacent to New Zealand.
The API accepts queries stated in QuakeML (a flavor of XML), KML, or GeoJSON format specifying date range, location boundaries specified by latitude and longitude, and magnitude range. It returns matching reports by reporting station, with epicenter location and magnitude data.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
