ShakeMap Atlas

An atlas of maps of peak ground motions and intensity ShakeMaps has been developed for approximately 1,000 recent and historical global earthquakes. These maps are produced using established ShakeMap methodology and constraints from macroseismic intensity data, instrumental ground motions, regional topographically-based site amplifications, and published earthquake rupture models. The Atlas of ShakeMaps provides a consistent and quantitative description of the distribution of shaking intensity for recent global earthquakes (January 1973 - September 2007 for Version 1.0). Read more about the ShakeMap Atlas.
