Special Credits

Special thanks go to the Czech Geological Survey, the authors of the geological maps from which the geometry of many of the faults in our database was taken or which served as one of the sources for deriving the new, updated geometry.





  • The database and this web were made largely within Sigma2 project, the Czech participation being funded by ČEZ
  • The research on individual faults and the population of the database was co-funded from various projects provided by GAČR, ČEZ, SÚJB, MŠMT and European Research and Development Funds.
  • Contributing research projects from public sources include:
    • GAČR GAP210/12/0573
    • SÚJB VaV 01/2009
    • GeoBarr OPVVV CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/16_026/0008459
