Hazus-MH Flood Model Output and Applications (for ArcGIS 9.3.1/Hazus-MH MR5)
The Hazus-MH flood model provides tools to define floods of varying magnitudes and to estimate the social and economic impacts that result from such events. Loss estimations account for things such as damages to buildings and their contents, losses to essential facilities, debris generation, shelter requirements, and impacts on transportation, utility lifelines, and agriculture. This course provides an overview of the many types of output that the flood model can generate with a focus on how this information can be effectively used by communities to better plan for and prevent losses from flood events.
- Hazus-MH users who want to generate an estimation of social and economic impacts that might be sustained as a result of a flood hazard.
- Community planners, emergency managers, decision makers, academics, and any other person or organization involved with aspects of managing the risks to communities from flood events.
- Individuals who need to understand how Hazus-MH can be used to help mitigate those risks.
Completion of Hazus-MH Overview and Installation and Introduction to Using Hazus-MH to Assess Losses from a Riverine Flood Hazard or equivalent knowledge is required.
