Earthquake Risk Map

Turkey's new Earthquake Risk map uses information about the location of earthquake fault lines and local geological conditions to show the risk from earthquake damage in all of Turkey. By taking into local ground conditions the most dangerous (red) locations have been extended in much of the country, including in Istanbul.

If you click on the 'Raporlama' (report) button in the map sidebar you can view an earthquake risk assessment for a location. Just enter the coordinate information for the required area and you can view an earthquake risk report for that location. If you select the 'Bilgi Al' option in the map menu you can drop a marker on the map to view the peak ground acceleration (PGA) measure at the chosen location.
