How are the site-specific Geo-Zone Tool data queries calculated to determine the various building loads?


The online service " Snow, Wind and Seismic Zone Maps" shows the snow load, wind and seismic zones according to the relevant standards on the Google Map in many countries and shows the site-specific loads of the corresponding displayed zone map for the selected location on the map.

The location on the map can be defined either by using the search function offered on the website or by clicking the desired location on the map.

The connected load determination is linked to the selected location and always shows the site-specific load depending on the local load zone information and the height above sea level.

Since our online service uses the fee-based Google Maps services as a basis, we offer our users only a limited number of free geo-data queries (load determinations). In the event that this limited number of load determinations is not sufficient, our Geo-Zone Tool Data Queries packages are available. These packages release a certain number of site-specific data queries for all stored contacts of a company.

A data query corresponds to a load determination depending on the selected zone map (load type) and location on the map. A possible change of the load type leads to another data query due to new zone information. Thus, in the standard case, each location requires at least 3 queries with regard to the determination of the local snow, wind and seismic load.
