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.
