Google Map of Geology

This documentary, in the form of a Google Map, provides examples of geology throughout the world that you can zoom in close on to see where the depressions, eduction, eskers, fabric, folds, faults, joints, horses, hoodoos, intrusions, kettles, lava fields, melange, monadnocks, polje, rifts, roof pendants, stratum, talus and more that are described elsewhere on the Internet actually are. The boxed legend contains Wikipedia descriptions of various geological terminology that are color and symbol coded to examples of each term. In addition, this map contains a Google Earth KML file that enables you to examine each site in 3D.
