I found the Map key very helpful in detailing the timeframe by the last hour, day or week of recent earthquakes with color coded pins. Similarly, it was useful on the Filters display to sift through results by Magnitude of Earthquake and Distance from Location. Earthquake is an excellent scientific utility that those who live in earthquake prone zones will especially be glad to have.
