All earthquakes, with a magnitude above 2.5, which have occured since January the 1st, 2000 (that’s a little more than 500k earthquakes in total).
Following the annotations (use the arrows on the side of your screen on mobile) will pinpoint some of the most intense or deadly seismic events of the last 20 years.
Pro-tip: Double-click somewhere on the model to focus on a specific area, or anywhere else to recenter the view !
