Is there a key to the colored location markers on the earthquake map app?
it’s based on magnitude :
color_map = [ "#00b5b8", # Mag 0, Teal "#bf40bf", # Mag 1, Purple "#08e8de", # Mag 2, Light Blue "#0000ff", # Mag 3, Blue "#00ff00", # Mag 4, Green "#fff000", # Mag 5, Yellow "#ffaa1d", # Mag 6, Orange "#ff0000", # Mag 7+, Red ]
Thanks Tavis. It’s a neat app.
I just added this to see what the aftershocks in Turkey are looking like, sadly.
Any chance of this info finding it’s way into the app? I keep returning to this thread to check the magnitudes.
I’m not the author of the app but this might be doable. Where would you put the magnitude though ? Sometimes there are multiple quakes on the map.
Oh I just assumed you were the author! The colour key could just be in the phone app, for reference, and not displayed on the Tidbyt. I just keep forgetting which colour is which magnitude, so I have to go back to this thread every so often
Sorry, this was just pointed out to me to check out. I will see what I can do for an in-app key. The solution doesn’t pop into my mind immediately but since I’ve spent all of 2 seconds thinking about it I will play around with potential solutions.
In the meantime, would it be helpful to put it into the app’s readme in my Git repository?
I also replicate the readme on my personal site:
I have added the color code as an addendum before the app readme file on my personal website. The GitHub-flavored markdown doesn’t play nicely with color tags in HTML so I will just have it there before the README file is included rather than in the README itself.
Would this work, as a reference in the drop-down list for magnitudes? At least for now* till I have time to be more clever?
*Now being defined for values of the time to do a pull request and release into the community.
Yes this is absolutely sufficient! Thank you for the effort
The PR is submitted!
