World Physical Wall Maps
Recommended World Physical Map. 1:30,000,000. DMA/NIMA/USGS. An attractive large-sized world physical map that is reasonably up-to-date (lacking only the Zaire to Democratic Republic of Congo change). This is the updated single-sheet version of the 8-sheet World Wall Mural map (67-8805).
Updated 3-sheet and 6-sheet versions are also available. These maps are all made from the same original cartographic image, so the detail is the same on each map, just enlarged more for the larger wall maps. Please note that we have put sample images up for each size. Each sample is scanned at 1:1 and covers the same area of the map; the SE USA. This way you can see the comparable size and detail of the maps. Mercator projection.

World Earthquake and Seismicity Maps
World Seismicity Poster: 1979-1988. USGS. This poster (64 x 36") displays selected hypocenters for earthquakes that occurred during 1979-1988.
More than 23,000 separate epicenter locations, representing 97,069 earthquakes, are displayed. The base map is Raven Maps' famous "Three Worlds" map.
Global Seismicity and World Cities. USGS. This map (53 x 34.5") displays the worldwide hazard to cities posed by large earthquakes.
When earthquakes occur near cities of any size, the potential for damage is great. On this map more than 39,000 earthquake epicenters (purple dots) are depicted.
Where earthquake epicenters are co-located with cities, the earthquake epicenters are denoted by orange dots. Base map from Raven Maps.
A Century of Great Earthquakes: 1897-1996. USGS. This map (27 x 18") sohws selected earthquakes having a determined magnitude of 7.8 or greater.
Portions of the Southwest and North Pacific are not included, even though they may have experienced great earthquakes. The base map is from Unique Media.
Circum-Pacific Seismic Potential. USGS. The map (35 x 26") shows the time-dependent probabilities for the recurrence of large (7.07.7) shallow, plate-boundary earthquakes within specified segments of the Circum-Pacific region. The time window depicted is 1989-1999. Base map is from Raven Maps.
Tsunami-Generating Earthquakes. USGS. This map (27 x 18") shows those earthquakes that occurred in 1900-1994 that generated destructive tsunamis somewhere in the Pacific region.
Many of the earthquakes shown denerated tsunamis that resulted in loss of life. Tsunamis that originated from distant earthquakes are also shown on the map. Base map from Unique Media.
