This poster presents two recently deployed web interfaces for data visualisation associated with New Zealand earthquakes, consequent ground motions, and geotechnical conditions. Simulation Atlas (http://atlas.seistech.nz) provides a map-based visualisation of the historically-observed and potential future earthquakes on major known faults in New Zealand and key information about them, such as tectonic type, anticipated magnitude of a potential rupture, and probability in 50 years. For selected faults (100 at present), it provides the 3D animation of the potential ground motion produced by GMSimViz, an in-house-developed automation tool that converts the ground motion simulation output into a 3D animation. NZ Vs30 model viewer (https://vs30.seistech.nz) allows users to visualise and query Vs30 estimates for Geology, Terrain and combined models for a specified location as well as geology and terrain categories. This gives an improved visibility about how a Vs30 is chosen making it easy to verify the value intuitively and also identify areas for improving such models for regional applications.
