It looks like its Google screwing with the icon capacity again, even overriding NZ Topo Maps ability to show thousands of icons up until about 10/10/2016 (when my blog maps started going funny)

But Wait!, I think I have found a workaround.
I have found a way to embed Google Earth into the page that replicates the functionality of the real KML Embed Gadget that was discontinued by Google.
It works OK, but there is no guarantee it will continued to do so.
It looks like this.

there are a few issues.
1. It doesn't work on Chrome or IE, only Windows and Mac OS x10.6
2. It doesn't work on Mobile.

But wait!!.
If you install the Google Earth APP on your mobile you can look at the map in that.
I have made the KMZ link letters bigger at the top of the page so it is easier to touch it to open on your screen. I may create a GE image icon for that when I get time.

but wait!!! there's more, but its a bit weird
On Google Earth on your Mobile when you click the icon it doesn't open a tag with the info on it, it opens a new screen with the info on it.
I don't know how that works, but to get back to the GE map just touch the Arrow at the top left of the screen to go back.

3. I will have to go back to the coloured orbs again, as the little squares are too hard to see on GE, in fact back 7 years ago that's why I created them. That's not a biggie as I can change the entire icon series in Dropbox with a few clicks.
4. The biggest issue is I will have to rewrite all the posts to embed the GE gadget.
5. I'll probably keep the 'heatmaps" for the thumbnails, that works better than showing the coloured orbs on such a small image. I may change the squares to circles though, need to test that one out first.

OK go ahead and look now
I did the 10th Oct as a test.

Oh by the way, the first time you open a page with this embedded i-frame it will ask you to allow Google Earth to open on nzeq2016, then after that it should open every time. I'll check whether deleting cookies resets that, in the morning.

Luckily I didn't get too many of those Depth graphs done, I'll use the coloured orbs for those too so it all fits together.

Well damnit, the NZ Topo map is up and running OK again, after 2 days of non performance.
No idea why it wasn't working properly.

Well at least I have a backup plan now.
I did a bit more fiddling around with the Google Earth gadget.
If I just create the KMZ file without the text showing the Mag and Time, or just Time only, when you open the file in Google Earth itself the list shows " no name" for every line event, so you need the text for that to make sense.
So I put Time UTC in the file. But its a bit messy when the Gadget opens.
I'll do a few more days and see how it goes, I didn't really want to change/re write 288 posts if I didn't have to.
Haven't decided whether to go back to the coloured orbs right across the board, it would make japanquakes really cluttered with 500-600 icons per day.

I guess the main questions are;
How many readers have Google Earth installed on their mobile phones? (or will do so to be able to read the map)
How many people use Chrome or IE? (can't see the Gadget)

edit: answer to the 2nd question below
Pageviews by Browsers over the last month, from my Blog Stats
Entry Pageviews
Firefox (67%)
Chrome (31%)
Dragon (~1%)
Internet Explorer (~1%)
Maxthon (~1%)

Pageviews by Operating Systems, same period
Linux (9%)
Android 5.1.1(1%)
Android 6.0.1(~1%)

I have put a little GE icon on the thumbnail maps (that show when nzeq2016 opens), so that you can tell if it has the Gadget or not.
To be safe for now I might do both NZ Top and the GE Gadget, to save having to rewrite these new posts later if/when NZTopoMaps fails.
edit on 1000000028528516 by muzzy because: just to say eqarchives and japanquakes are working again too, with thousands of icons on some posts

edit on 1000000028528516 by muzzy because: and I have put NZ Topo back on the 10th and 11th Oct NZEQ2016 but they have the orbs instead of the squares

Let me get this out of the way. Poor Muzzy, yes, it's time for the moon people again. There's lots of stories in the media about the upcoming big moons. But, this time, it's not all hype. First, let keep it brief and I will state that I will make no big claims, except one. Next year, the eclipse will pass over Yellowstone. The moon's pattern that caused the big swarms at Yellowstone in the past, will return next. If I am a prophet of doom, it's not now, so I'll move on and forget about it again.

Right now, since it's been quiet, there soon, will be a return to some clustering and big ones. And since, the moon will be a hot topic, it may get the credit and the reason may just be a return to some big ones. It may be coincidental. I'd be surprised if we go the next two months without ones. So, to make a claim that the moon did it, I will have to work hard to line up all the dots...

This following article is a good one. I loved the diagram. maps, graphs, and diagrams rule. They don't often lie to me.

Politicians do, and so do their agents in the bureaucracy. When the data is compiled, you can't avoid physics forever.

The reason I'm wondering how much the moon may effect things, is the tides will be high, then low. It's the fluctuation that causes lubrication, erosion, and storm surge which can be effected by hurricanes/cyclones.

I love this line from the story... "For extra fun, said November 14th perigee Full Moon is the closest in 30 years; expect Supermoon lunacy to ensue."

Is he talking about me?

I don't know about the constellations. I'm still trying to wrap mead about the 18.6 year cycle. I found a video that tries to explain the orbit of the moon. Last year, was the end of the cycle. I guess this means this is year one. It's really about how the moon is not exactly on the same plane as it goes around.

Thats some cool stuff. I have to ask... when this happens which constellation will it pass through?

Do you have any idea?

I guess I need to google it. lol

I have two minutes to write. Funny, a week ago, I said Northern Nevada all but stopped. Then, there was a few. Nothing really. Then, Challis Idaho has three small ones. And, just now, Northern Nevada comes in with a 2.M

There is a connection.

Eric, I thought about you when I read about the two storms due to hit the Northwest today and Saturday - with hurricane force winds and expected storm surges...and wondering what, if any, effects these storms might have on the Cascadia...

Read about it this that would not account for my very vivid earthquake dream last night. (Prescience, perhaps?? Hope not!)

Still quiet, with few high magnitude quakes, low solar flux and solar flares.
I've put an updated SolarFluxVS Earthquakes graph on significantearthquakes
This way I can update it and change the image easily.
I haven't got the Moon on this one, I am working on it, I forgot how I did the earlier version (with the solar flares on it) that also had the Moons phases .
I won't bring the Solar Flares over to this one as I can't for the life of me see any connection whatsoever to earthquakes.

Bit of a ruckass over on the Alpine Fault this morning, near Inchbonnie. Nothing big, but worth noting as the Alpine Fault has been quiet for too long. (overdue like Cascadia and San Andreas)

I did a Google Earth gadget for Japan 11.10.2016JST as an experiment, see what you think
11.10.2016 JST

interesting how the Google Earth opens with the globe tilted, I guess that is because the earthquakes cover quite a long stretch, Japan is about the same size as NZ, but the earthquakes that NIED collect run right down from the middle of the Kurile Islands to Taiwan, a distance of 3768km.

Thumbnail only shows M2+, there were 579 markers/icons for 11.10.2016 JST so the full map was totally black with them

edit on 1000000028728716 by muzzy because: add another map image

While I had the GPS Visualiser page open I put 13.10.1982 through
this is what it looked like. Data back then was scarce, it came solely from the NIED Kanto-Tokai observation network.
scale of the map is closer than the ones above, zoomed in one level, this is at the same scale as the New Zealand Thumbnails.

I have noticet odd groups of earthquake above australia.
this is the second one in 3 day.
first in with a sort of W pater, 5 at 5.4 in 20 hours.
now 6 at 4.4 to 5 all in a line? all in 27 hours.
from the mid of new zealand to the mid of japan.

why would the all be in the same range?
it is like some one set of nuclear bombs!
some thing very dangerous is going on.
or maybe its over?

Can any experts comments please?
p.s I am useing earthquake 3D

Just to let tall know that I have changed to Orb icons right across all my maps.This takes effect immediately on Google Earth, NZ Topo, and ikiMap links.
Google Maps and Bing maps are now unusable, although Google Maps are still available as backgrounds on NZ Topo and ikimap.
The decision to make the wholesale change was for clarity on Google Earth.
Not sure what is wrong with Google as a company, I found out yesterday that Google Drive has dumped a bunch of photos I had stored there and used on my company website, what a PITA that is I had to load the originals to another host and rewrite a whole bunch of HTML code to get the pages back up.

Also, there have been some in Turkey. A few weeks ago there was another small cluster with some in Macedonia, I think. No, Montenegro
I keep thinking Turkey is overdue and having been watching.

EMSC would be the one to watch for those quake, being European and all.
But they are off line right now,

GFZ are saying the first one was 5.4Mw, so that makes the rest aftershocks.
just a normal quake, unusual place though, must have been overdue
