Abstract

The investigation of the records of past earthquakes in Europe and in other countries of the world produced in recent years a large amount of information, such as historical seismicity studies, earthquake catalogues and collections
of intensity data points. The rapid growth of computerized information systems allowed for management of data in digital form, while the evolution of Information and Communication Technologies initiated a
new era of sharing, transferring and disseminating the output of this investigation. This paper outlines the availability and use of collections of intensity data points which are increasingly being offered to users through Internet such as: DOM and CFTI, Italy; SISFRANCE, France; ECOS, Switzerland; EMID, a starting point towards a European-Mediterranean Intensity Database; NGDC/NOAA database, US; CERESIS catalogue, South America.
