The Stress Map of North America, constructed on four 42 inch by 55 inch sheets, plots modern maximum horizontal stress (SHmax) orientations for North America inferred from a variety of geophysical and geologic data. These data are described and discussed in the companion DNAG volume Neotectonics of North America. A brief description of the various stress indicators is given in the legend.
