How do I get earthquake hazard maps for locations outside of the U.S.?

The USGS has seismic hazard maps for the US, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico & U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam & Marianas and Samoa & Pacific Islands. In addition, we have created some other Foreign Hazard Maps for Afghanistan, Haiti, South America, Southeast Asia and the State of Gujarat, India.  

For more information about hazard maps for other locations outside of the U.S. visit the GEM (Global Earthquake Model) Foundation website. GEM is a non-profit, public-private partnership that generates seismic hazard maps for the globe by using seismic hazard models from countries that develop their own (including USGS models) and then by filling in the missing areas with their own models. This page lists the countries that have developed their own models that GEM uses. This page shows a map of those model boundaries.
