Abstract(Summary)
A software system has been developed that seamlessly integrates desktop GIS, Google APIs and the mobile Android SDK. This system programmed within the .NET environment integrates Google StreetView within desktop ArcGIS for an in-lab virtual assessment and visual data assessment of buildings. For on-site assessment, the Android SDK has been used to create a custom app that provides seamless communication between the app and add-in via a common JSON or schema or via CSV files. This system substantially increases the efficiency of data collection and allows future HAZUS users to collect structural information on thousands of buildings within a very small time-span when compared to manual sidewalk survey methods. The system architecture has been validated using the existing building stock in Ottawa. The software will be made available on the projects web site for other HAZUS users.
