This feature from NASA's Earth Observatory takes a look at how the earth changed forever on April 25, 2015 after the devastating earthquake that shook Nepal.

The Gorkha earthquake changed the shape of the Earth—literally—by raising up and dropping landscapes by several meters. Along a 90 by 30 kilometer (55 by 20 mile) swath of land in Nepal, a fault along the edges of the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates slipped as much as 6 meters (20 feet).

Fathom, using data from the USGS, has created this interactive map which allows you to search earthquakes around the world since June 2014.

Users can add layers to the map - population density, mortality risk and the tectonic lines. You can also subset by magnitude.

A timeline is included at the bottom of the map.
