The paper provides a description of the Web Based Decision Support Tool gWaveLeth for expected damage and loss assessment, as well as for the identification of effective response measures to strong earthquakes. This System takes advantages of GIS gExtremumh, gGloSeisRiskh and gEIG/GEM Infobookh. The gWaveLeth System development is supported by the World Agency on Planetary Monitoring and Earthquake Risk Reduction.
