SeisFinder is a web application to enable the extraction of high-fidelity outputs from computationally-intensive earthquake resilience calculations. Currently, SeisFinder has a focus on providing information from ground motion simulations in a range of formats, but intentions are to provide outputs that cover the full hazard-to-impact pipeline of earthquake loss and resilience calculations. SeisFinder has been developed under the umbrella of QuakeCoRE Technology Platforms 3 and 4 by Brendon Bradley, Daniel Lagrava, Sung Bae and Sharmila Savarimuthu.

Users can select simulations of historical or future earthquakes at either a single location, or over the entire simulation domain. As part of the version 1 release, historical events include major events in the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquake sequence, and the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake. Future events currently include simulations of a potential Alpine Fault earthquake that is being used by both Project AF8 and also QuakeCoRE’s Alpine Fault Earthquake Case Study.

Information available at present includes ground motion intensity measures and/or the full ground motion acceleration time series (for use in dynamic response history analyses). Users can sign up for updates, or get in touch directly with the development team, or the technical advisory group. By the end of 2017 we plan to add over 100 further events (historical or future) and also add additional search criteria to filter a larger database.
