ABSTRACT

GIS and HAZUS-MH: HAZUS Applications for Catastrophic Planning   [open pdf - 9MB]

"HAZUS-MH continues to play an important role in advancing one of FEMA's priorities in 2007 -- planning for catastrophic earthquakes and hurricanes in the United States. This presentation about the benefits of HAZUS Applications for Catastrophic Planning was presented by Doug Bausch, FEMA Region VIII, and Shane Hubbard of The Polis Center during the 2007 National HAZUS Users Conference. The first annual HAZUS Users Conference was held concurrently with the ESRI International User Conference in San Diego, CA. This presentation uses Wasatch and New Madrid Earthquake scenarios to demonstrate the use of HAZUS for comprehensive risk assessment planning. It details the use of HAZUS-MH for scenario development for a catastrophic earthquake, and the role of HAZUS-MH and other tools at FEMA Headquarters for supporting impact assessments."
