Build-in import of USGS shakemaps
USGS provides observed ground-shaking map for many earthquakes that is nice to be used in the
loss-calculator. These shakemaps are provided as
The two main steps to have an importer in the
loss-calculator for these shakemaps include:
- Extracting the PGA, SA(0.3) & SA(1.0) from the
HDF5files; Rearrange them into a single dimension array that matches the grid; Also re-arrange the grid into a 1-d array.
- Create the SA(0.6) using log-log interpolation as some fragility/vulnerability functions the SA(0.6) provided by ESRM20 is based on SA(0.6)
