Faunalia and North Road, in collaboration with Italian Institute of Geophysic and Vulcanology (INGV) have developed a QGIS plugin to manage earthquake historical and current data.

The QQuake plugin is born!

The simple interface allows the users to easily dowload the data:

QQuake UI

Just choose the area, the time range, the minimum and maximum magnitude and finally the service and with a single click you will have the related earthquake points in QGIS:

Have a look at the QQuake Project page.



Related to the plugin we have also published a paper available on Frontiers in Earth Science.
