Global Digital Tectonic Activity Map (DTAM) from NASA/GSFC
Entry ID: NASA_DTAM

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: A digital tectonic and volcanic map of the world was created which integrates
numerous remotely sensed and GIS databases. This integrative technique made it
possible to analyze data differentiated by spatial and temporal resolutions.
The remotely sensed data ranged from 9 kilometers to 30-meters resolution. The
GIS datasets ranged in scale from 1:1,000,000 to 1:24,000. In both cases, the
numbers ... View entire text
