MyShake is a project aims to build a global smartphone seismic network to enable earthquake early warning capability by using the power of crowdsourcing. It utilizes the sensors inside everyone's smartphones to monitor the earthquakes. The motivation of this study is to build a seismic network that can be easily scaled it up to a dense network globally to provide useful earthquake early warning to the public, especially places where they cannot afford traditional seismic stations. After MyShake released to the public in Feb 2016, we have more than 300,000 people downloaded and the network have already been covered the whole global within very short time. In this study, we will discuss the aspects of issuing earthquake early warning through this smartphone network.
