Build your own earthquake map

If you have Google Earth, download our KML file here. It shows the earthquakes from September 3rd to September 9th (morning).

Google map

In Google Earth, use the slider bar at the top of the screen to play them as an animation.

The Google Earth interface is not so intuitive. In the later versions of Google Earth, the slider bar has two "handles". There must be a gap between the two "handles" for earthquake symbols to appear.

The wider the gap, the longer they will stay visible.

The standard play-back setting is also too fast. Click on the tool icon to change the playback setting from "fast" to "slow".
