A new set of seismic zoning maps were published in August 1, 2001. It includes two maps, one is the seismic zoning map of peak acceleration, the other is the zoning map of the characteristic period of the response spectrum. The exceeding probability of the map is 10% within 50 years. The scale of the map is 1:4 000 000. These maps serve as the national standard. The background of this project, technical approach and key scientific measures, the basic feature and the application of the maps are introduced in this paper.
