|GNS Science maintains the New Zealand Active Faults Database. This database has been designed to hold all data collected from investigations of active faults. Along with the locations of active faults, the Active Faults Database contains the results from field measurements of offset features, trenching, and dating. It also stores interpretation of these results in the form of the average fault recurrence interval, slip rate, and date of last movement. This detailed information, which is collected at many points along a fault, has been summarised and presented here for each fault.||

|Whilst the maps of fault locations presented on these pages are derived from detailed location data, the fault features have been generalised to assist presentation. The maps should be treated as overview maps only. They should not be used for as a substitute for detailed mapping.
The Active Faults Database is a growing database and will be subject to change as new information becomes available and new interpretations are developed. Consequently information presented on these pages will also change.
|GNS has made every reasonable effort to ensure the information given on these pages is accurate, complete, and up-to-date. However GNS make no warranties or representations as to its accuracy or completeness and shall not be liable for any injury or death, or for damages of any kind arising out of access to, or use of the information, or any errors, omissions, misprints, or out-of-date information.|
