From source



"First, I was surprised by the sheer amount of earthquakes that have been recorded," Nelson told OurAmazingPlanet. "It's almost like you could walk from Seattle to Wellington [New Zealand] if these things were floating in the ocean, and I wouldn't have expected that." In all, 203,186 earthquakes are marked on the map, which is current through 2003


I wonder if they counted the aftershocks, too but I think not.
Gives the term "ring of fire" a whole new meaning

Looked at this image more and weirdly, (not trying to suggest this is anything major, or feed conspiracies, just an observation) it looks like a horned devil figure with tail, forked tongue and trident, well I guess the devil is reportedly from a fiery hell and brought hell on earth. Wonder if the ancients or religion makers knew anything about this earthquake pattern, there is a lot of symbology in religions, it isn't all literal.

Earth is certainly volatile, there have been many wipeouts and we are overdue another......

Agreed, it's based on a male-centric ego based society of greed and power. If it was based on family-centric sustainability, nurturing and longevity instead of throw away non degradable substances and structures and processed foods then ther would be better health for humanity and the environment and it's inhabitants.

Considered developments would have been preferable to the unconsidered 'solutions' offered by the industrial evolution and large scale domination of the land in an unnatural way. It has only led to overpopulation, overcrowding and unsustainable 'use' of resources.

And the source of the data to create the map came from where?
If it was USGS they missed 25% of them

If you read the article it says until 2003, so there are more. Data is also in the article and on the top right of the picture, USGS and other sources provided data, including NASA.

Also from the article



There are undoubtedly many earthquakes missing, given the dramatic change in scope and accuracy of seismological instruments from 1898 to the present day. Nelson said he saw a huge jump in the volume of data from the 1960s forward. Yet even without the complete catalog of earthquakes, the map provides a striking visual reference — even though none of the data are new.
