Thanks for this, we used to do earthquakes and stuff in science, and now i can find all the plates and stuff ;)

I agree. I thought it could be a good teachers guide, especially if they are currently teaching plate tectonics and their students want a visual display.

OOH! This is sweet!

I Googled this after watching a CNN vid-article interviewing a USGS rep on the latest Sumatra quake. It talked about the recent Volcanic/earthquake pattern around the world.

This hack is great, and I love that I can imbed it, but...
1.) how do I add a field to enter a location to jump to?
2.) The plate colorings are rather... Opaque. How might I add a slider to vary their intensity?

Mucha Thanka, sweet mashup!
