Frequently asked questions

- I can't get the map to work.

If you're having problems with the map, let us know using the feedback form below. Don't forget to tell us which browser you are using, and try to be precise about what went wrong.

We are aware that a small number of people are presented with a blank map of the US, or no map at all, and are working to resolve those problems.

- Some items on the map aren't placed where they should be

For some of the content on the map we have only been able to plot the approximate location, for other pieces of content, if we plotted them too precisely, they would overlap and become very difficult to see clearly.

- Why is no damage visible on the satellite images?

The satellite images, which make up the map, were taken before the earthquake struck.
