Step 1: Go to https://sdlc3d.sun.com/ECom/EComActionServlet/DownloadPage:~:com.sun.sunit.sdlc.content.DownloadPageInfo;jsessionid=2B180343DF457F54F40C707C4D8972AD;jsessionid=2B180343DF457F54F40C707C4D8972AD
and install "Windows Platform - Java Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 12" (preferably select the "Online Installation")
Step 2: Go to http://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/hazmaps/design/index.php#install_java and install "Java Ground Motion Parameter Calculator - Version 5.0.7 (3.5 MB) "
Step 3: The "Seismic Hazard Curves &* Uniform Hazard Response Spectra" display will open.
Step 4: on the very top right corner use the pull down menu to choose the appropriate Code (in this case IBC 2006)
Step 5: Enter the zip code or the Latitude/Longitude to get the result.
P.S. Based on Dr. S.K. Ghosh suggestion, entering the Latitude/Longitude will result in more accurate output. You can get the Latitude/Longitude from google.com or other sites.

I don't know where you can obtain the CD but you can lookup the values at the following USGS site: http://eqint.cr.usgs.gov/eq-men/html/lookup-2002-interp-06.html

The 2006 IBC refers to a CD by Leyendecker, Frankel, and Rukstales for determination of seismic design parameters. I have a 2000 IBC version of that CD, and it is very helpful.
Is the newer (apparently, 2004) version of that CD any different from the 2000 version?
How can I get that newer CD?

A few months (weeks?) ago a link was posted to a site that had the IBC seismic factors by address. Can someone link that?
