There is a new Code Central program available with up to date spectral values and maps - it supports different codes and reduces the confusion.

The program is called “Java Ground Motion Parameter Calculator – Version 5.0.6” and it can be downloaded at the following site:

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/hazmaps/design/#install_java

You will need to download Java Runtime Environment and its ActiveX controller if you don’t have them on your computer.
