Companies can query the Temblor API for numerical output of probabilistic and scenario results in the United States and Taiwan, with more limited results for any location in the world.
The output includes the Temblor Earthquake Score (0-100), which is a probabilistic measure of earthquake risk for a building of interest. The score is proportional to damage loss; it considers site amplification, liquefaction and landslide susceptibility, and fault proximity. A score of 100 indicates 20% replacement cost loss in 30 years. Scores are based on single family/condo wood frame building and consider 3 code levels based on construction date. If no building specification data is available, the score defaults to single family wood home built between 1951 and 1974.
API Scenario outputs are drawn from a USGS database of 1,000 scenario earthquakes in the United States and 44 scenario earthquakes by the Taiwan Earthquake Model (E-DREaM). We report the PGA for the scenario that produces the strongest shaking at any street address or geographic coordinates.
