World Stress Map 2016 Google Earth File Updated

World Stress Map 2016 Google Earth File Updated

A message from the World Stress Map Project (WSM; WDS Regular Member).

You may have noticed that the display of the WSM database release 2016 in Google Earth is not working any more. Red crosses are displayed rather than symbols and lines that indicate the orientation of maximum horizontal stress. The reason is that the WSM web-server has moved to a new machine and the links in the old Google Earth KML-files are outdated.

We uploaded on our WSM database release 2016 landing page at an updated Google Earth KML-file (a zipped KMZ-file), and you should replace your old one. In case you would like to display older WSM database releases in Google Earth, please contact heidbach(at)
