Title
VU_Point_Building_Exposure_Verified
Abstract

The building exposure database includes a comprehensive inventory of residential, commercial, public and industrial buildings, consisting of their location, structural characteristics that affect the vulnerability to the effects of natural disasters, and replacement costs. Sophisticated methodologies were adopted for (1) identifying the spatial distribution of buildings in each country, (2) estimating building characteristics, and (3) assessing their unit replacement costs. Raw building datasets, which included approximately 80,000 field surveyed buildings across 11 countries, was critically analyzed and thoroughly processed to develop the building exposure database. The locations in this layer are only those that have been manually digitized from high-resolution satellite imagery and surveyed in the field (coverage: PG, TO, VU, TV, SB, WS, CK, FJ, KI, PW, and FM). Compiled by AIR Worldwide.
