Want to know where each recorded since 2300 BCE meteorite fell on Earth? A new card will help.

Javier de la Torre, co-founder of software companies and Vizzuality CartoDB has published a map showing the heat where meteorites have fallen over the past thousands of years. According to The Verge, which showed on the map and spoken with Torre, 34,513 individual points of impact are recorded on the card.

De la Torre said that it took him only 30 minutes to record the impacts. He used OpenStreetMap, a crowdsourcing platform for the card, then the impact sites of entry from data collected by the weather Society.To While the impact sites are not all meteorites that have made their way through the atmosphere and hit something. Many meteorites actually fall into the ocean. The map data de la Torre has only confirmed impact sites and recorded.

The map was published a few days after the world was rocked by news of a meteorite in Russia. Speaking to The Verge, de la Torre said he believes that "people are curious meteorites after that of Russia."
