# tectonic faults catalog for plot

I looking for a catalog (ideally in a ASCII file) of the major tectonic faults on earth, in order to plot some of them on a map

Any suggestion ?

• For further studies, you can have a look at Gplates. You can produce some really nice plots based on regarded plate reconstructions. – Tactopoda Oct 8 '16 at 13:28

Another option is the data from Peter Bird at UCLA that he described in his article "An updated digital model of plate boundaries", $G^3$, 2003. He provides the data in ASCII format in their ftp site (they include a readme file with the description of the data).
