Here, data from NCEDC.org and the USGS and UC Berkeley have been sliced out into veneers based on magnitude, then glued onto and image that began it's life at NASA's Visual Earth and wrung into the Times projection (centered at the interesting bits). The result looks an awful lot like a fleet of Nickelodeon tankers spilled the world's supply of floam.

The lines are right where one would expect them, but the results a beautiful.

The only issue I have with it is that the article does not give a clear minimum of earthquake size to be included on the map. It is clear to see the New Madrid area is empty, as well as the fault line along the Nebraska/Iowa/Missouri boarder, as well as Oklahoma. I would venture to say this is far from complete. I am not dissing the work put into it and it is visually nice and does show the Ring of Fire very well.

its a shame they didn't spilt the map in 2, or have they?

1898 to 1956 and 1956 to 2012, would be a good visual guide to any changes.

odds are if the data came from NCEDC.org and the USGS and UC Berkeley then they missed 25% of the quakes
