Developing USGS Earthquake Map (2MB GIf warning) Topic 2
@bhepler i guess if you can do it in two, you are also able to do it in one. if you can’t there are enough people to help
@croxis Flat maps? Intruiging. I hadn’t considered that as an option, but I suppose it makes sense. I did find Cesium, which appears to support flat maps natively (as well as a host of other very useful features). But It looks processor-intensive right out of the gate. I’m not even going to bother trying that one on a Pi.
@strawberry-3-141 True that. It’s not like we’re hurting for disk space on these things. Just memory and computational cycles. I’ll give it a go and if I hit any problems, I’ll reach out. Not here, of course. I’ll start a new thread.
@bhepler Just an update: The globe with planetary.js is a bit of a processor hog. On a quad core i3, it’s maxing one core and the other three hover between 40-80% at any given time. I’m going to try WebGL next and see if the hardware acceleration can reduce that.
The FitLet runs hot. Of course, that may be due to one core always maxed at 100%. Even just staring at the desktop.
