This study describes the experience of the application of computer technology ``Structural analysis of geophysical data'' and geodynamic study results for the purpose of seismic zoning of the region with a low seismic activity. In the Finnish#x2013;Bothnia region, including the sea water area, a number of potential seismogenic zones were identified. The results can be used to compile the map of possible earthquake sources in the future.
