Overview

This workshop will introduce participants to the capabilities of Hazus-MH, a GIS-based risk assessment methodology and toolkit created by FEMA for analyzing potential impacts from floods, hurricanes and earthquakes.  The instructor will discuss and demonstrate the wide range of options available for defining and analyzing hazards.  They will also explain the types of estimations that Hazus-MH can produce for things such as debris, damage and economic losses to buildings, casualties and shelter needs, and much more.  The workshop will highlight options that geospatial professionals have for improving the credibility and usefulness of Hazus-MH outputs through the integration of enhanced data about the built environment as well as the hazards that communities might face.
