Indonesia’s tectonic activity is one of the most active in the world. These conditions make Indonesia prone to earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. Tsunamis are large ocean waves that are formed through several processes such as underwater earthquakes, underwater landslides, volcanic activity, and asteroid impacts. Indonesia has been hit by various tsunami events. However, not all characteristic tsunami events are well known and recorded. Knowing the characteristics of a tsunami occurrence is very important to understand the frequency and intensity of tsunamis in the present. This research create a WebGIS database for paleotsunami in Indonesia. Tsunami incident data comes from literature related to tsunami events such as books, journals, reports, final projects, and others. Making WebGIS in this study will be developed using website programming, namely HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The research results obtained 302 tsunami data. The period of tsunami in this research is from Late Miocene to the last tsunami in 2018. The WebGIS created presents a database of tsunami events in Indonesia, a dashboard of Indonesian tsunami statistics, and a tsunami learning educational feature. It is hoped that the results of this database will serve as a means of information for future paleotsunami research needs and as a means of education regarding the potential for tsunamis in Indonesia.
