The Rapid Earthquake Viewer (REV) provides access to earthquake data from seismograph recording stations around the world. The Earthquake View lets users select an earthquake and see data at various stations. The Station View allows users to see if any ground motion has been recorded at a particular station. Lesson plans are being developed for REV, aimed primarly at the middle school level. The resource provides several techniques to help users contextualize and understand seismic data. REV is related to GEE, the Global Earthquake Explorer, a fully-functional earthquake analysis tool.
