Anthropogenic Seismology: A look into Earthquakes and Fracking Activity in Oklahoma

This analysis focused on uncovering any meaningful significance between the location of M3+ earthquakes in 2015 and underground injection wells in Oklahoma. More specifically, I was interested in finding out what the probability that the distribution of earthquakes is occurring due to random chance. Defining and testing whether earthquakes occurring at a certain depth, location and magnitude are related to fracking activity is out of scope of this analysis. However, determining preliminary pattern analysis using GIS is a prudent first step.
