The intention of this map is to give a quick overview for decision makers on supra-regional or national level about the risk exposure of the population to seismic hazards and landslide susceptibility in Guatemala. The classification used here runs from yellow (few people exposed) to red (many people exposed). The class width of the yellow-to-red division has been chosen to facilitate the visual representation of the variability of values obtained in the assessment.
White colored Municipios don’t have surveyed settlement areas exposed to the combined hazards just mentioned or the chosen hazards are not spatially relevant at the settlement area sites, either.
