I need a world-wide image/overlay of tectonic plates / volcanoes locations.
Can someone help me?
Because its an overlay of the whole world the countries dont line up *EXACTLY* but its pretty close! :) Hope this helps!

thanks for that, mate, but i wanted one real accurate. However, i will keep your one for now.
I really wanted some volcanoes too , their locations. Can anybody help?
You can turn on the volcanoes layer in the layers section of GE, it will then put a placemark with the volcanoes name and some info about it on every volcano around the world. :)
You can also use an image like this;
But it will have the same problem as mine, it wont line up 100% because the images aren't totally to scale.

Try this. It shows the Techtonic Plate Boundaries and any recent Earthquakes. You'll have to Expand the Tree Menu to get the Plate Boundaries. Click on the Link on the Webpage to get the Kml file.
