This page provides an overview of external tools used in conjunction with or within Hazus, and is intended to give users an overview of some of the tools which can make Hazus more effective.
These are tools developed specifically for the use with the Hazus Model software.
- Comprehensive Data Management System (CDMS) Tool
As a complementary tool to Hazus, CDMS provides users with the capability to update and manage statewide inventory datasets, which are currently used to support analysis in Hazus. The CDMS functions as a single user or shared desktop application and is installed during the Hazus installation.
- Hazus Data Export tool is included with the Hazus software, and can be found in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Hazus-MH\BIN\Tools directory. It is provided as an ArcGIS tool that can be added to the Toolbox, or run using Python. This allows users to export Hazus results to an easily shareable file geodatabase.
- Hazus GitHub Page The Hazus Program offers open source utility tools for several Hazard analysis and links to additional documentation. These tools can be found on the Hazus GitHub page, and do not always require ArcGIS to run.
