Google Earth KMZ files from the USGS


The U.S.G.S. has some free earthquake related .kmz files you can download from here and view using Google Earth. The above image is from the Quaternary Faults file, and shows historic faults in the Owens Valley (Owens Valley Fault System, that’s Mono Lake in the bottom corner). The Poor Man’s GIS just keeps getting better and better!
