Did I miss the new Stationview Map announcement?

I was a bit surprised when I refreshed the station view map and the triangles were changed to hexagons.

Overall, I really like the changes. The RS model type in the hexagon is a nice touch. The update rate is much better. The map sparkles now :slight_smile: I also like the ability to turn off the events to reduce clutter.

A couple of questions: What is the refresh rate? What is the source of the events and how far back do they go?

If there is a link to all the info, please point me to it.

Hello Steve, glad to hear from you again!

Thank you for your constant interest in our updates! I will ask our tech team for the details, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I have them.

Hello again Steve,

here’s a detailed sheet on the functionalities of our Station and EQView portals: https://manual.raspberryshake.org/_downloads/756aa79446b1b263fe8a0091641cc9de/stationViewQualityParameters.pdf

The refresh rate for events is ‘as soon as new information is available’, while the refresh rate of the stations is in real-time.

Thanks for the info on the timing of the info.

I still have some questions about the events:

  • How long are they listed on the map? It looks like it is around a week.
  • What are the event codes and what do they indicate? I have seen mostly M, but I did see a C
  • What is Phases used for or mean?

As always, that you for all the info.

No problem at all Steve! Here are the answers you seek:

  • How long are they listed on the map? It looks like it is around a week.

This is correct, they remain for 7 days.

  • What are the event codes and what do they indicate? I have seen mostly M, but I did see a C

Those codes are related to the location determination process procedure, with A as Automatic, M as Manual and C as Confirmed.

  • What is Phases used for or mean?

They are the number of stations used to determine the event location.

On this last point, the entire column should be populated, so we are checking out what is not working as it should. Thank you for your feedback!

Thanks for the info on the events!

Ok. I will make an enhancement request :slight_smile:

I like having the ability to hide and show the events. That is a good feature.

However, it would be great to have the ability to filter events when they are displayed. Ideally, you could filter by time and magnitude.

Examples:

  • Show all (no filter)
  • Last 24 hours, All Magnitudes
  • Last 48 hours, M3.0 and above
  • All Events, M2.0 and above
  • etc…

Thanks again for all the info and a very nice update to the station view map.

This is an interesting feature that could be added, thank you again, Steve.

I will open a ticket for our developer team, and let’s see what will come out of it in the future.

It is no problem at all, glad that you appreciate the new pages!
