Earthquakes and Planning for Ground Rupture Hazards
Entry ID: SSDP_HAZARD_EARTHQUAKE


Summary
Abstract: Detailed maps bring a greater resolution to the number and locations of active
faults. Preparing maps at a higher resolution requires extensive field study,
and with a GIS, information, such as tract and parcel data, utility corridors,
and flood hazard zones, can be incorporated to help decision makers in locating
remediation facilities.
