Although there are many studies for seismic microzonation in the literature, these studies have not covered the whole seismic microzonation processes. Moreover, they have not sufficiently focused on the important subjects, such as significance and use of aerial photos in seismic microzonation studies, data types used for seismic microzonation, and integrating these data by GIS.
