A 4D view of the Isle of Man, viewed in three animations

Animation No.1

The Isle of Man has been built over 500 million years of geological history with the Island’s topography resulting from erosion of the different rocks by ice, rivers and the sea. This map allows us to easily see two of the major faults (which are lines of ancient earthquakes) which are a feature of the geology of the Island; the Central Valley, connecting Douglas and Peel, and the northern escarpment which runs between Kirk Michael and Ramsey.
