I just had my first real “hit” with a 1.9 quake in the UK. A happy bunny for sure! I used swarm to check the data with other UK stations and I got the confirmation I needed.
I checked with EQ locator and nothing could be found. The lowest quake shown has a value of 2.7. I think that is a minimum threshold that only shows quakes above a certain value. Presumably this is reduce clutter.
It would be useful if this threshold could be lowered. One way would be to lower the threshold when zooming the map. That way the full global map would be as now.
When making a quick check, EQ Locator is much faster than loading SWARM plus the individual station(s) data. Selecting the event and a station is really easy on EQ.
