GeoJSON is a format for encoding a variety of geographic data structures. A GeoJSON object may represent a geometry, a feature, or a collection of features. GeoJSON uses the JSON standard. The GeoJSONP feed uses the same JSON response, but the GeoJSONP response is wrapped inside the function call, eqfeed_callback. See the GeoJSON site for more information.

This feed adheres to the USGS Earthquakes Feed Life Cycle Policy.


GeoJSON is intended to be used as a programatic interface for applications.
