Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This manual was created for Canadian GIS users who want to run an earthquake loss estimation scenario using Hazus Canada. Hazus was developed by the US National Institute of Building Science (NIBS), in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to provide a national standard methodology for modelling the potential physical, economic and social impacts from earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods. Hazus outputs and analyses have many applications and have been used in a variety of sectors, including the insurance, geotechnical engineering, emergency management, city planning, and building planning sectors. This guide assists the user in running an analysis for an earthquake hazard scenario in Canada. The guide is intended to be used as a complement to existing Hazus guides published by FEMA and available online. This document provides guidance on differences and adaptations for the Canadian user and provides support to enable the running of Hazus in a Canadian study area.
