Same here. I either use Google Earth or to get lat and long coordinates for a street address.
I saved the USGS NSHMP app onto my desktop, but check the usgs website to see what version is current.

I actually download the USGS program and run it on my local computer.  It is very straight forward.  Look up the latitude and longitude on google and put into the program along with building code version, site class, etc. and you get all the calculated Sms, Sm1, Sds, Sd1, etc. values along with a response spectra curve if you want.

To All,

I have been using the website to obtain specific site acclerations for whatever I am designing. It's a great website because you put in the address and it gives you a Google map along with the various accerations. Unfortunately, the website is down and I am not sure when it will be back up.

So, anyone out there have a good replacement website for finding site acclerations, (I find the USGS site to be too cumbersome)?

Thanks in advance,

Larry Hauer, S.E.
