What are microzonation maps?
- Effects of earthquake shaking are not uniform due to variation in local site conditions.
- Seismic microzonation maps display predicted variation in earthquake shaking (site effects) due to local site conditions.
- The input data to produce these maps includes geological, geophysical, geotechnical information combined with numerical modelling.
