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.
This was a simple map I made while pursuing undergraduate degree at MCLA in North Adams, MA. The data was publicly available and it was made using ArcMap. The map features skills in symbology, data representation in charts/graphs, as well as inset maps, legends and proper formatting. This map was authored in 2015.
