GEM Global Active Faults
The GEM Global Active Faults project is compiling a global dataset of active faults (link here) for seismic hazard assessment as well as research, education and general interest. While this is a work in progress, we've got a lot of the world covered already. Check out the map below, and click on any fault for more information. Thanks!
The faults are colored by kinematcs; blue faults are dextral, purple faults are sinistral, red faults are normal and black faults are reverse. See this map full screen
Many thanks to the many geoscientists and organizations who have made the regional catalogs used in this work.
