Current and previous DISS versions
All releases are freely downloadable. The data are made available in various desktop-GIS formats and as "kmz" files. Users must be aware that the persistence of information of any individual version is granted for parametric data only. All support information (commentaries, pictures, and references), instead, may be modified without notice. The downloadable files are made available to ensure reproducibility of elaborations and compatibility of applications that used any previous version of the database as far back as 2001. A persistent identifier (DOI) has been minted for each version and a detailed description of updates and amendments accompanies each successive release.
The Database of Individual Seismogenic Sources (DISS), the original software and all related texts and elaborations were prepared by researchers of the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia. The Database includes a large amount of original and published material on the main seismogenic sources of Italy together with background geographical, seismological, geological, and tectonic information, and is freely available to all interested parties. The Database was designed as a "work in progress", and as such, it is open to later additions and improvements. For these reasons and due to its intrinsic nature, the Database cannot be guaranteed to be complete, accurate and updated in any part, and will be subjected to successive revisions. Although the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia makes every effort to supply the best available information on seismogenic processes, no warranty, expressed or implied, is provided as to the accuracy and reliability of all the data supplied in the Database. Users are cautioned to consider carefully the provisional nature of the data and information before using it for decisions that concern personal or public safety or in relation to business involving substantial financial or operational consequences. Conclusions drawn from this Database, or actions undertaken on the basis of its contents, are the sole responsibility of the user.
