Identifying zones with different seismogenic characteristics is a first and crucial step in estimating the probability of occurrence of future earthquakes. However, in practice, this process is usually neither documented nor properly data supported. This publication explains the iterative process followed for the definition of the GM12 seismogenic source zones model considered in the new official seismic hazard map of Spain, developed by the Instituto Geográfico Nacional and ETSITGC (UPM) in 2012. This model results from a previous one created following the expert judgment methodology after the cooperation of a large number of Earth Science researches from Spain, Portugal and France, in the frame of the first Iberian Meeting on Active Faults and Paleoseismology (Iberfault-2010), the European project SHARE (Seismic Hazard Harmonization in Europe) and, eventually, by the Advisory Board for the New Seismic Hazard Map of Spain. The publication explains in detail the different geological, crustal, active tectonics and seismological criteria used for identifying each of the 59 zones for calculating seismic hazard in Spain. This publication aims to be used for future work according to the growth of scientific knowledge, as well as a guide for the optimum transference of geological knowledge into the field of earthquake engineering and to society in general.
