Mapping Turkey's Recent Earthquakes

Looking at earthquake data from the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program, we extracted all earthquakes in Turkey from the year 2000 onwards, filtering by those with a significance of 600 or greater. We then analysed the shakemap for each data point, extracting the complete polygons for each layer, and mapping each point's value to the height displayed on the map.
