Indonesia Building Exposure Development

Background

This study – conducted through the Global Earthquake Model (GEM) Project – for the Australian-Indonesia Facility for Disaster Reduction (AIFDR) and the Indonesian Government reflects the collaboration of local and regional disaster reduction experts, technology providers and earthquake risk modeling specialists. The project is unique in that preliminary methodologies to “streamline” building exposure model development that are part of the GEM initiative through its Inventory Data Capture Tools (IDCT) project are being used to test and validate a new set of technologies and sensors, tools that are essential for “upgrading” current earthquake loss estimation models. To a large extent, the lessons learned from this effort will intelligently inform data developers on the challenges that exist in creating building inventory data in areas where little cadastral information is publicly available.
