Interactive location map

The interactive location map allows you to view the distribution of many of our rock samples on a map of the Earth. Individual samples appear as a red 'location pin', but where pins are too close to show separately, a numbered circle indicates multiple pins. To view individual pins, simply zoom into the area of interest and click a pin to display the popup with the sample name and a small image of the rock. For more information on the sample, clicking the sample name opens the individual sample fact sheet with all the associated information.
