Earthquake intensity maps are made to indicate where the shaking occurred. Maps from quakes before widespread seismograph networks use creative information.
The San Andreas Fault is the plate boundary between the Pacific and North American plates. This transform boundary is made by a strike-slip fault that has massive earthquakes.
In January 2010 a 7.0 earthquake struck along a strike slip fault that passes through Haiti. Scientists had predicted the right magnitude, but could not know the date.
