GIS-Yerevan is a Geographical Information System (GIS) developed for the Armenian Rescue Service. GIS-Yerevan is based on 1:2000 scale construction map of Armenia and and allows to track the influence of earthquake on each building. GIS has information regarding each multi-apartment building (both residential, commercial and state-owned), hydro-geological properties of soils, micro-seismic zones and may be updated by the end-user. It runs scenario earthquakes, and gives approximate number of human losses, classifies buildings' damages, estimates resources needed to clean the debris and quantifies food and shelter requirements.
