    The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values. Briefly noted: National Geographic has built a web interface that allows anyone to find any quad in the United States, and then download and print it. During past decades, these quads (topographic maps) were printed by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) on giant bus-sized presses. But now they've been pre-processed to print on standard printers found in most homes.
