I have found another way to delay progress (but add value) on :japanearthquakes:
and generally waste some
more of my spare time.
As I go through each year and month I do the odd special page, if there is a big quake with lots of aftershocks, or a swarm of smaller quakes. I'm
trying to keep it to when there are just 100 plus events if I can, there are plenty of them worth putting on, but I'd never get it all done if I did
Right now I'm stuck in the 1980's. E OFF IZU PENINSULA keeps popping up, some huge swarms there, so I have set a special category for IZU.
, it applies to any category on the site, such as a year or a decade.
The best way in is to type IZU into the search box and then click on "show all X results" to get the pies up then click the one that is of interest,
that way the popup is full page.
So to find the "specials" to post each month I do a Excel =COUNTIF formula I created with all the Prefecture names for that year, to get the number of
quakes for each one.
While I was doing this I thought "hey I wonder what that would look like on a graph?"
the result (for June 1987);
I'll do some more
Re Izu; one that blew me away was the "Near Izu-Oshima Island Swarm 16-30 Nov 1986", 1372 events in 2 weeks, it was when the volcano erupted.
