Vulnerability of existing building inventory is at the heart of risk assessment. This presentation will explore data collection methodologies for documenting relevant building attributes and assessing the potential for mitigation. Specific examples of buildings and data collection platforms will be given. Further discussion will focus on collection of building inventory data for large numbers of buildings for use in Level 2 HAZUS analyses for wind and flood hazards.
