Global earthquake maps
The development of the Global Earthquake Hazard and Risk Model was a key priority for GEM under its 2014-2018 Work Program. The objective is to collaboratively develop a complete set of earthquake data and models, and to deliver a comprehensive global assessment of earthquake risk.
This map presents COVID-19 statistics released by Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center over the GEM Global Risk Layer depicting earthquake risk from the GEM Global Earthquake Model (2018).

The Global Economic Vulnerability Map is a composite index that was designed primarily to measure the potential for economic losses from earthquakes due to a country’s macroeconomic exposure.
Global Economic Vulnerability Map
The Global Social Vulnerability Map is a composite index that was developed to measure characteristics or qualities of social systems that create the potential for loss or harm.

The Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Global Seismic Hazard Map (version 2018.1) depicts the geographic distribution of the Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA) with a 10% probability of being exceeded in 50 years, computed for reference rock conditions (shear wave velocity, V , of 760-800 m/s).
