After the May 6, 1976 earthquake in Friuli Venezia Giulia (NE of Italy) the buildings in the shaken area were investigated and 84780 forms were filled in. After a first organization of these data, we provided a re-designed database in order to make the data more usable. Thanks to the new technologies that have emerged in the last years, the original data were enlarged, adding, where possible, the geographic coordinates for each form acquired. We are now able to exploit new information for deeper studies and analyses to a level of detail unthinkable until a few years ago. All this information is now available on-line upon request.
