A comparison between the seismicity and active faulting density maps indiactes that a good spatial correlation can be observed between these two parameters. It probably means that active faults are the main seismogenic sources responsible for generating earthqukes in this region. The good consistency observed between the seismogenic zoning map presented in this research and the results of the previous works indicates that the spatial analysis techniques can reliably be used for seismic hazard regionalization and identifying seismogenic hazardous zones in seismically active regions.
