MCEER Earthquake Reconnaissance Investigation
The building damage detection algorithms and VIEWS system documented here were funded as part of ImageCat Inc. and UCI research, conducted under MCEER Thrust Area III: Earthquake Response and Recovery (NSF Master Agreement EEC-9701471). Thanks are extended to UCI and the EERI Learning from Earthquakes Program, for purchasing the QuickBird satellite imagery. The efforts of EERI reconnaissance team members Farzad Naeim and Babak Mansouri, who deployed VIEWS in Bam, are gratefully acknowledged.
