    Abstract The Wellington Regional Council's earthquake hazard maps combine the
    separate components of earthquake risk (such as ground shaking, active
    faulting, slope failure, liquefaction, and tsunami potential) into single
    maps for Wellington, Porirua, Kapiti Coast and the Hutt Valley.

    The purpose of these maps is to provide better information to individuals
    and organisations in the region about the risks from a major earthquake,
    and to help find ways in which this risk can be reduced. They will be of
    particular interest to emergency management professionals, local
    authorities, planners, engineers, and insurance companies.
