Abstract

The weeks following the firestorms that struck Canberra on 18 January provided the former Cities Project with a unique opportunity to collect crucial data concerning building damage and fire behaviour. The data provides information about the impact of this disaster and will assist with accurate modelling of future events and their consequences. Using Global Positioning System (GPS) units, digital cameras and palmtop computers with ArcPad GIS, comprehensive information was recorded on 431 suburban properties that suffered damage to the primary residence by fire and/or wind. Over one thousand photos were also taken and linked to the GIS database.
