What's the the Washington State Geologic Information Portal?
This application puts complex geologic and hazards information into the hands of everyone—citizens and community decision-makers as well as
scientists and technical professionals—allowing them to quickly compare and synthesize data of different types (geology, hazards, resources, base
maps) to help solve a variety of problems.
- create custom geoscience maps for online display
- find out more about individual map features
- download the corresponding geospatial data
- make informed decisions on issues such as the environment, natural
- resource protection and exploration, land use, and public safety

Revised Tsunami Inundation Maps
Revised text to better explain the differences between this study and past studies, greater detail provided with regards to survivability for inundation, clarified text to better communicate the chronology of events and address limitations of the model with regards to liquefaction. There are three types of maps: tsunami inundation (life safety), detailed inundation, and current velocity.
- One each for Grays Harbor/Northern Willapa Bay and Willapa Bay to the Columbia River. The digital version of this publication is available at http://www.dnr.wa.gov/publications/ger_ms2018-01_tsunami_hazard_southwest_washington.zip.
- Maps are also now available for Bellingham and Anacortes. http://www.dnr.wa.gov/publications/ger_ms2018-02_tsunami_hazard_anacortes_bellingham.zip
- Maps are now available for Port Townsend and Port Angeles. https://washingtonstategeology.wordpress.com/2018/08/17/newly-published-port-angeles-and-port-townsend-tsunami-inundation-hazard-maps/
Some brochures are tabloid-size (11 x 17 in.). The "upside down" orientation of part of the second page is because they were designed to be folded in half and then in thirds. They can be printed on letter-size paper by telling your printer to shrink to fit or scale to 50 percent. All maps are PDFs.
