The IRIS Earthquake Browser (IEB) is an interactive map for exploring millions of seismic event epicenters (normally earthquakes) on a map of the world. Selections of up to 5000 events can also be viewed in profile and freely rotated with the 3D Viewer companion tool. No plugins (like Flash or Java) are required. These selections can also be viewed as sortable tables and exported to Excel. Notably the map, with (almost) all of its settings, can be bookmarked, emailed and socially shared. Other websites can dynamically construct IEB URLs and thereby send people to a certain very specific place, time, and set of quakes (example). IEB and 3DV are easy to use. They are intended to be of value both educationally and as research tools.
