Linog collects information on seismic events that took place in your area (100 km radius) in the last 24 hrs. Coverage is limited to Philippine territory. For this app to work, you need internet connection and your phone's location services activated.
This app aims to be a platform for learning about risks associated with earthquakes. Linog (Visayan for "earthquake") is produced by DILC (Diliman Interactive Learning Center, University of the Philippines), in cooperation with PHILVOCS (Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology) and ASTI (Advanced Science and Technology Institute).
