NSDL teaching resources related to “spatial interpolation”

In this activity students create a plot of worldwide earthquake epicenters to display the narrow zones of seismic activity of the Earth and aid in an understanding of plate tectonics. Students will either plot a list of earthquake locations on a small map or plot daily or weekly locations from the Web on a large wall map of the world. It is useful to initially perform the epicenter plotting activity on an individual basis.
