Real-Time Generation of Arias Intensity and Seismic Landslides Hazards Maps Using GIS

M. Mahdavifar, M.K. Jafari, and M.R. Zolfaghari

A GIS-based platform is developed by which shaking intensity and seismic landslide hazard zonation maps are generated in a short time after the earthquake. The shaking over the entire regional extent of earthquake prone area is obtained by Arias intensity attenuation relationship. By using simplified Newmark method, the seismic landslide hazard zonation map is generated based on the calculated Newmark’s displacements.
