The seismic hazard maps to be used with FEMA 273 and ASCE/FEMA 273 are the same maps that are to be used with 1997 NEHRP Provisions and are referred to as the 1997 NEHRP Maps (Seismic Hazard Map Package) distributed FREE by the FEMA  Publication Distribution Center, telephone number 1-800-489-2520.<BR>

There is a major error in Seismological Research Letters, May/June 1999, page 295 (published by the Seismological Society of America) which states, INCORRECTLY,<BR>
that the seismic maps to be used with ASCE/FEMA 273 and FEMA 273 can be found at the USGS web site: http://geohazards.cr.usgs/gov/eq/  This web site presents the USGS Probabilistic Hazard Map information which is different from the 1997 NEHRP "Design" Maps.<BR>
