On the global map, only larger quakes are included (otherwise, there would be thousands of points). If you are interested in complete lists including smaller earthquakes, please navigate to a specific region from the menu.
Disclaimer: There is no warranty for completeness or correctness of the information on this map. The earthquake data on this map are collected automatically from various public data sources, namely USGS, EMSC, GFZ and GeoNet. In the list of quakes, you find a link to each source where further information about this individual quake can be found. Smaller quakes (<M4) are only included in the areas which these agencies also cover for small quakes, mainly the US and Euro-Mediterranean regions. World-wide coverage is near complete for quakes >M4 and complete for M>5.
