Duplications of Lat/Long are driving me crazy.
Not just at Mt. Holdsworth, but on some of the old data I have gathered for the Strongest Quakes blog.
I started going through and changing to the square icons @ 1867. Thats all good.
But when I attempted 1868 I found 3 duplicates
So what to do, only one event shows on the popup tag from the icon.
It works OK if you use the list on the left, but that's probably not everyones method of viewing, so ...........
In the "About" page a new *
* Note on Lat/Long Locations
On some of the older years maps (e.g. 1868) there are several separate events which have the same latitude/longitude, this is partly due to poor
detail in the data. They may in fact have been at the exact same location, but it is unlikely. Because the square icons are 50% opacity these will
show on the Bing interactive map as 100% opacity. But only one event will show on the popup tag when you click on the icon. For clarification on the
maps I have added 0.0001 to both Lat and Long on one of the dual events, so that in maximum zoom (down to 100ft) the two icons split apart and you can
click on the icon for details.
Using the list on the left works better though
I don't think 0.0001 degrees should make that much difference, shucks even EMSC only uses 2 decimal points, and they never agree with USGS as to the
I reckon Captain Cook would have been able to handle it, if I sent him across the World to a point that was 100ft out I don't think he would be too
pissed off and have me lashed on the mast. (watched a doco about him last night, what a guy)

use as the map to enter Bing maps and also the thumbnail for the Flipcard style.
Yeah found another duplicate, South of Panama 1871, a 7.0 and a 6.5 which were 3 months apart, but right on top of each other. I split those by 100ft
too. 1871? South of Panama? Panama was a department of Colombia then, didn't become a country of its own until 1903.
