Dammit, a couple of quakes on the Pacific Plate east of East Cape Ridge again this morning NZST.

Its a real PITA to plot those on Open Street Maps along with the others West of the Anti-Meridian, because that is where OSM splits the Global Map.
The icons ARE on the map, but you have to manouvre the map as noted below on the page;
Note: Drag map hard right to see the 2 earthquakes on the Eastern side of the Anti-Meridian
yep that's right, drag the map right, so the actual landmasses go left, so that you get to the other side of the Anti-Meridian, which is just to the
right of NZ, makes no sense at all.
it's easier if you zoom right out first then zoom back in.
I had to stitch 2 images together to get the Thumbnail for Flipcard style load.
I hope there isn't another series of earthquakes on the Anti-Meridian like back in Nov 2014, it would be a real pain to have to stitch the map
together every day.
Same would apply if I was doing the Alaska/Kamchatka area.
maybe I should go back to NZ Topo for NZ?
Its a dam sight easier, only done 16 in the OSM so far.
Working on some new pin icons that centre on the epicentre, previous attempt they were out of whack. You can't get an image of the OSM pins anywhere
on the Web, they build themselves inside the OSM system.
Japanese maps are sweet though. Have got into the routine in colour.
