Great technical quality, although the quality of the stream may vary on bandwidth and traffic.

Animation automatically starts playing, but not with the most recent data. User will need to drag slider bar on timeline to start at the beginning of the data set.

The interface is easy to use. The user can play the display continuously from January 2009 - June 2011 (as of August, 2011) or jump to specific dates and events.

Layers (e.g., highlighted events, border and the part of the globe not covered by the satellites) can be turned off and on.
