|Title: ||Developing a Web-based GIS Application for Earthquake Mapping|

|Abstract: ||The fast technical progress of web-based GIS has enabled visualising complex geographical phenomena for the interested public. This research paper analyses the development of a global earthquake web map which allows the visualisation of significant seismic activity, in the context of geophysics, and the risk posed to local populations. The project is an extension of the World-Wide Earthquake Locator (WWEL) developed at the University of Edinburgh.
