There Is an App for That: Building A Worldwide Seismic Network

from University of California, Berkeley

MyShake is a free app for Android phones that has the ability to recognize earthquake shaking using the sensors in every smartphone. The app runs "silently" in the background on your phone using very little power — just like the step-tracking fitness apps. When the shaking fits the vibrational profile of an earthquake, the app sends the anonymous information to our central system that confirms the location and magnitude of the quake.

See Video: MyShake

MyShake's goal is to build a worldwide seismic network and use the data to reduce the effects of earthquakes on us as individuals, and our society as a whole. MyShake also provides users with information about recent earthquakes around the world and significant global historical earthquakes.

For more detailed information on the MyShake system, see the research article.
