Dear Saeid,
you can find the full size Tehran map on top of this page. I cannot send it to you. You can click on it and enlarge it to see details. There might be better and more detailed maps on line though.
thanks for your visit

Dear Shideh,

Your website is amazing. I appreciate your desire in Tehran seismic zonation. I would be very grateful if I can help you find detailed maps from IIEES and develop your studies on Iranian cities.

Good point, Shayan… here’s a link to a site I’ve been visiting a lot recently with detailed aerials of Tehran – it’s pretty cool:
I’ve added this above after the first map as well. You can zoom in pretty close anywhere in Tehran…

Long Live Democratic Seismology

Chile survived its huge earthquake relatively well. Iran would be a different story.

By Christopher Hitchens

Posted Monday, March 1, 2010, at 10:32 AM ET

… “In Tehran, Iran’s capital, Dr. Bilham has calculated that one million people could die in a predicted quake similar in intensity to the one in Haiti.” (Italics added.) …

… And what would happen to the secret nuclear facilities, both under the ground and above it? … what would the survivors think when they looked around the (possibly irradiated) ruins …

… it should become part of our humanitarianism and our public diplomacy to warn the Iranian people of the man-made reasons that the results of a natural calamity would be hideously multiplied in their case. This, together with the offer of immediate help in earthquake-proofing, enhanced from our experiences in California, is nothing less than a moral responsibility. …

Earthquake Early Warning for mobile phones


Earthquake Early Warning


Earthquake Early Warning: How can an earthquake alert be announced before tremors are felt?


Area Mail Disaster Information Service

… Earthquake Early Warnings issued by the Japan Meteorological Agency and disaster and evacuation information issued by national and regional public institutions in emergencies such as disasters. Those are delivered simultaneously via the DOCOMO network to mobile phones located in specific areas.


Earthquake Early Warning System at a Local Government and a Private Company in Japan

Hiroaki Negishi and Shunroku Yamamoto


We have developed a real-time earthquake information system, which provides earthquake information just a few seconds after P-wave arrival at the nearest station from a hypocenter [Horiuchi et al., 2005]. This system determines hypocenter and magnitude immediately by using telemetry seismographs network operated by National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention (NIED). Thus we get early warning for big ground motion before it begins in an area a little far from a hypocenter. Now we are conducting the actual proof experiment in collaboration with a local government and a private company, in order to verify the validity and practicality about the broadcasting and application of this information.

The earthquake alarm information is automatically sent from NIED to the Fujisawa City Office, Kanagawa, Japan, having large earthquake occurrences. Data processing PCs at the office estimate seismic intensity and S-wave arrival time and display them. The PC has a function to control an eight-channel electric relay automatically according to the information, so we can control patrol lights, some instruments, etc. We started the system in July 2002, and now 13 public halls; two municipal schools and a city hospital have this system.

Tokio Marine and Nichido Risk Consulting Co., Ltd., a risk-consulting subsidiary of one of the major casualty insurance companies in Japan, introduced this system in June 2003. The earthquake alarm information is mainly used for the employee’s safety. Data processing PCs transmit information on seismic intensity and S-wave arrival time to the monitor unit (a display, speakers and a four-color patrol light) and employee’s cellular phones. We are also using it for the business of the company. The earthquake information triggers “Payment insurance calculation system” to estimates the payment insurance and to call members for the damage assessment automatically.

Good day.
I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
