Updated California Fault Map Released

The California Geological Survey on its 150th anniversary has released an updated version of a fault map along with an updated version of a rock and soil map.

The maps are available as interactive Google Maps.... dare I say ...mashups?

The idea is that knowledge of the location and types of faults will guide decisions on where to build and on construction standards.

You can view the fault map here and the geological map here.
