We present the first comprehensive database of active and potentially-active continental fault in Chile based on existing studies and new mapping at 1:25,000 scale using geologic and geomorphic criteria and digital elevation models derived from TanDEM-X and LiDAR data. The database includes 959 fault strands grouped into 17 fault systems and classified based on activity (78 proved, 592 probable, 288 possible). The database is a contribution to world compilation of active faults with applications in seismic hazards, paleoseismology, landscape evolution processes, geothermal exploration, and in the study of potential feedbacks between continental deformation and the plate-boundary seismic cycle along subduction zones. Data is provided in ESRI shapefile, Google Earth kmz, and as Excel spreadsheet.
