This course provides an in-depth exploration of the Hazus-MH inventory, which describes the buildings, infrastructure, and populations that are at risk from hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes. It includes an overview of the methodologies that were used to develop and compile the Hazus-MH-provided inventory. However, the focus of the course is on developing the technical skills for updating and maintaining the inventory with user-provided data.
Participants will work extensively with a variety of data management tools including ArcGIS. It is expected that they will have experience with ArcGIS prior to attending the course. Those without this experience will be challenged to successfully engage in course activities.
Prerequisites: Skills equivalent to those taught in E190 ArcGIS for Emergency Managers.
Describe the structure of Hazus-MH inventory including file locations and contents.
- Know how to use the Comprehensive Data Management System to improve the Hazus-MH inventory with user-provided data.
- Prioritize the most important parts of the Hazus-MH inventory that require updating based on project needs.
- Identify typical sources of information that can be used to update the Hazus-MH inventory
Selection Criteria: Federal, state, local, and tribal emergency managers, planners, and GIS specialists who want to learn how to integrate user-developed building and other non-hazard inventory data into the Hazus-MH modeling process. A working knowledge of ArcGIS, including the ability to create and manipulate data, is required.
