Natural Hazard Viewer for Arizona
September 24, 2013 | Arizona Geological Survey
The interactive Natural Hazard Viewer focuses on four hazards common to Arizona — geologic faults and earthquakes, earth fissures, floods and wildfire. Each hazard is described in detail and displayed as a layer on a map. Moreover, the natural hazard information is dynamic; site updates will occur as new or revised hazard data becomes available.
Editor's Comment: Every state geological survey should have one of these!
