Abstract
The 5.8 magnitude earthquake in 2016 raises concerns about earthquakes. Therefore, it’s necessary to prepare countermeasures against earthquake disaster. This study visualizes the earthquake risk by crawling earthquake data from the Korea Meteorological Administration web. The data are 1,411 earthquakes with a magnitude of 2.0 or more on the Korean Peninsula from 1980 to 2016. 150×150 grid was generated from the data to generate an earthquake hazard map, which indicated an earthquake hazard. In addition, the seismic risk before and after 2000 was evaluated to see the trend of earthquake occurrence. As the results, southeast region, northwest region and the yellow sea are at high risk of earthquakes. And we could find that the trend of earthquake occurrence since 2000 has changed from northwest region, yellow sea, east sea to north inland.
