ShakeCast bad news/good news

Written on .

USGS tells us that they are “phasing out ShakeCast version 2 in favor or version 3 so that support is limited to existing v2 users with installed software for production purposes. As a result all new v2 installations need to be installed manually. It does work under Windows 7 and equivalent 32 and 64 bit OS’s and will require some efforts, we are talking about ~1 hour of work….” They apologize for not yet having fully integrated ShakeCast V3 with ROVER, but they plan to do so in 2014. We have no written instructions from USGS on how that manual installation need to be done.  We will inform readers of this page when ShakeCast version 3 has ROVER features.
