About this Webpage

I enjoy working with GIS data and try to find new things to keep my skills honed with.

Within these pages, I am performing some GIS tasks about earthquakes. I am also preparing sets of maps of the earthquake hot spots around the world. These maps will be viewable on this webpage, at low-resolution, but hardcopy versions of these maps will be made available for purchase through my other website, www.HistoryThroughPhotos.com.
