What I want to do
Make use of Geospatial Technology to assess the vulnerability of buildings (residential and commercial) to fire hazard based on their closeness to fuel and gas stations.
My attempt and results
Digitizing of buildings on Open street map. Acquisition of x,y coordinates of the fuel and gas stations.
Questions and next steps
How many buildings are vulnerable? What is the estimated loss? Are there any regulations binding on the siting of a fuel/gas station? We will be mapping out the x,y coordinates of the fuel/gas stations Integrating the data into a GIS system. (ESRI Arcgis platform)
Why I'm interested****
Fuel/Gas stations are constructed without cautions. Building share the same fence walls with fuel/gas caution. I want to make people know the risk involved.
