In this webinar, you will create a simplified Earthquake Monitoring System, where the application works in the following fashion. First of all, a web service is defined that used an external package that talks to RSOE EDIS Rest API to get info on all earthquakes happening within the last hour. The location name corresponding to each earthquake point is then taken in order to extract the location coordinates (longitude & latitude) using GeoNames node. Based on the coordinates that the current weather conditions are retrieved using an OpenWeatherMap. When the above-explained web service is called, data returned is stored into a Cloudant database as well as displayed on a map in a dashboard using the Worldmap node. Three dashboard nodes are used here for displaying the points on the map, displaying the latest tweet on earthquakes happening along with a chart with the frequency of the earthquakes happening in each area.
