New Zealand Historic Earthquakes

14 November 2014

New Zealand is sometimes called the Shakey Isles and it's not hard to see why. This map shows all earthquakes in New Zealand from GeoNet, the earthquake monitoring service provided by GNS Science. This data has been extracted from the GeoNet WFS servce and filtered for earthquakes local to New Zealand.

The map is produced by overlaying point markers that are (very roughly and definitely not scientifically) weighted for the strength (magnitude) and depth of the measured quake.
