Why Dlubal Software?
Find the Data for Your Project Quickly and Efficiently!
The Geo-Zone Tool of the website Snow, Wind and Seismic Zoning Maps includes zoning maps to quickly determine snow loads, wind speeds, and seismic data according to the ASCE 7-16 and other international standards. The search function, based on Google maps, establishes the corresponding location to determine the following:
- Snow: ground snow load (pg)
- Wind basic wind speed (V)
- Seismic: spectral response acceleration at short periods (Ss), spectral response acceleration at 1.0-s period (S1), MCEG peak ground acceleration (PGA), long-period transition period (TL), risk coefficient at short periods (CRS), risk coefficient at 1.0-s period (CR1)
Although data can be manually transferred to external programs, an additional web application is available for automated data transfer.
The Geo-Zone Tool operates with map data services provided by Google LLC. These Google services are not provided free of charge which requires all users to assume this financial responsibility. For unlimited map use, purchase a Geo-Zone Tool package in the Dlubal Webshop. These packages are not limited to one user but can be used by all employees affiliated with the Dlubal company account.
Do you have any questions about using the Geo-Zone Tool or need any other advice? Contact us by phone, email or chat.

Determination of Internal Pressure Coefficient cpi for One-Story Buildings According to EN 1991-1-4
Wind is the only climatic load acting on every single type of structure in the entire world, different from other loads like snow, for example. The wind size depends on the geographical location of the structure. That is one of the main reasons why today’s standards have regional division (wind zones) and consideration of altitude, as well as variation of dynamic pressure depending on the height above ground for a “normal” site, without masking effect.
Considering Snow Overhang
The “Generate Snow Loads” function provides the option to consider snow overhang. Thus, the load of the snow overhang is applied automatically to the eaves using distributed load or several nodal loads.
