Abstract: According to the laws in place in Spain, the autonomous Community of Galicia (NW Spain) has two zones –Lugo and Ourense– at greater seismic risk. In order to control and minimize the damage to buildings and to population, a Special Civil Protection Plan for Seismic Risk in Galicia (SISMIGAL) has been drawn up, including a software tool specially designed for this purpose. The Galician Seismic Scenario Simulator v1.0 (SESGAL) is based on a geographic information system (GIS) and provided with a comprehensive database of the elements and resources that intervene in the management of an emergency. In addition to the typical functions of GIS, SESGAL incorporates a seismic scenario simulator –which enables the prediction of the effects of an earthquake– and a seismic emergency manager –which provides a tool for addressing the needs of the population in case of a catastrophe. The SESGAL software presented here provides a useful, rapid tool for an effective and efficient response to the dama ge caused by an earthquake in the Galician territory, managing the means and resources available.
