The Southern California Regional Map
This is an entirely new remake of a title we first published thirty
years ago. High-resolution digital elevation data highlights the
region’s very active tectonic history: the obvious junction of the San Andreas and
Garlock faults at Tejon Pass (4,160') was the site in 1857 of one of the
largest earthquakes recorded in the Lower 48.
In the north, this map covers from Morro Bay in the west to Ivanpah Valley in the Mojave Desert in the east. In the south, it covers from Baja California to the Imperial Valley. Our new Southern California map focuses on landforms,
with major roads shown in a light color. Significant city
and town names are included as useful reference points.
