QuakeSaver is a freeware Windows screensaver, which shows recent earthquakes, geo-localized on a true color Earth map. You can choose to display past day earthquakes, or past week earthquakes on the full world map, or select a specific region.

The screensaver blinks each earthquake event on the map and shows you its magnitude (in Richter scale), location and time, underlining it with nice visual and audio effects. QuakeSaver downloads earthquakes data from USGS Earthquake Hazard Program web site, which publishes a real time database of earthquakes in the world.

It makes me more aware of what is going on in the world and I might even learn some more of that geography.

It is good to know what is happening on Earth.
