GEE is unsupported software
We will continue to host GEE for download in the hopes that it may still be useful, but due to funding issues and lack of developer resources, GEE will no longer be updated. Currenly installed copies should continue to work as long as the servers that GEE acquires data from remain unchanged, but no promises are made. Thank you.

We have made a new release of GEE to address changes in the servers GEE uses. Version 2.2.1 can be downloaded here. The servers that GEE gets data from have made changes that were incompatible with GEE. We did not plan on updating GEE, but this was an easy change. It is very unlikely there will be any further updates. Thank you.

We have made a new release of GEE! Version 2.2.0 can be downloaded here. The servers that GEE gets data from have been changed. The old servers no longer exist, and so older versions of GEE will no longer be able to access new data, although the built in modules will continue to work.

We have made a new release of GEE! Version 2.1.5 can be downloaded here. There are only a few noticable changes, but still significant.
- New installer - We have a new installer for windows. It is a little clunky at present, but is free. Hopefully this will enable us to put out future releases more easily, and hence more frequently.
- New servers - To deal with some network firewall issues that were blocking access to the servers that GEE needs, we have switched to a separate set of public servers. This should allow GEE to get data that was being blocked in the previous version.
- Bug fixes in libraries - While we have not done much work on GEE proper, GEE depends on many code libraries that have had significant work done in the years since the last release. This fixes several commonly encountered bugs.

Version 2.1.4 is out! It fixes bugs in looking at earthquakes from REV, and talking to the network server. If you've been seeing the GEE warning dialog pop up frequently when starting Explore Recent Earthquakes, this should take care of it.

You can now access the documentation for GEE through this site. The Documentation page includes a .pdf version of the GEE User Manual intended for use with the 2.0.8 version of GEE. We're putting the final touches on the 2.1.1 version of the manual, so it should be up soon.

We have learned that there is a problem with java some upgrades of Apple's new version of OSX, aka Panther. This causes GEE, along with all other java programs, to not run. Apple is working on the problem and should have it fixed soon. More information can be found at this site and Apple's Java Developer site in this TechNote.
