Canadian Depth Damage Funtions

On today's CanHUG call there was an interest in sharing information on depth damage curves for flood modelling.  Feel free to add to the discussion and share with the group. 

Urban RAT tool download

The tool described operates in ArcGIS 10.x and Google Android and is designed specifically for the collection of building inventory data and so contributes to the adaptation of an existing standardized tool, FEMA-HAZUS, for seismic risk assessment of Canadian municipalities. HAZUS uses standardized classification tables for general building stock and consists of building type and occupancy.
