Helping each other ramp-up to Hazus Level 2

As you may have gathered from the copious "advice needed" posts from me, I am a new Hazus Canada user on a student practicum.  I'm helping set up Level 2 framework data for the Cowichan Valley Regional District for both Flood and Earthquake models.

Data formatting for CDMS/Hazus is a substantial GIS chore during setup, but since fields are standardized across Hazus users, we should be able to share some workflow shortcuts.

CanHUG Meeting 2014-01-15
