New Jersey Earthquake History Map (KML/KMZ)

NJ Earthquake History KMZ

This series of maps gives a brief introduction on the State of New Jersey’s earthquake history.  I chose to examine the geologic history of New Jersey as it pertains to earthquakes.  I am not originally from New Jersey so I did not know the frequency or magnitude of earthquakes that the state has experienced.  I was surprised to find out that the state has had a lot of quakes over the years although for the most part they have not been too powerful.

I created layers in ArcGIS and converted them to KML/KMZ files and uploaded them to Google Earth Pro.  The KMZ file is available to download here.
