Created by the University of South Carolina and the IRIS Consortium, the Global Earthquake Explorer (GEE) "is an education and outreach tool for seismology that aims to make it easy for non-seismologists to retrieve, display, and analyze seismic data." The goal of the module, which can be downloaded on a Windows, Mac OS X, or Unix / Linux platform, is to use earthquake data to study specific wave characteristics and to locate earthquakes. Before downloading, visitors can view screenshots of GEE. After downloading the software, users can find a helpful introduction to the module. Users can choose from three different views: a seismogram display, a real-time viewer, and a data viewer. The second site provides more information about the GEE program including news, downloads, GEE related projects, and the project's documentation.
