The City of Chicago wished to develop the capacity to extract data from the City’s GIS for use in Hazus-MH.  Polis provided documentation and technical assistance to the GIS staff and used the City GIS extracts to perform the GIS and Hazus-MH risk assessment analyses.

The Polis Center also assisted Will County GIS staff in their development and update of critical facilities prior to performing the analyses
