A new generation of tools is needed to allow researchers and practicing engineers the ability to leverage investments in new methodologies and software infrastructure while enabling customization to local conditions. MAEviz represents such a next generation of seismic risk assessment software, based on the Mid-America Earthquake (MAE) Center research in Consequence-based Risk Management (CRM) and is designed to be extended, customized, and evolved to meet the needs of specific organizations and regions. MAEviz helps bridge the gap between researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers by integrating the latest research findings and most accurate data, using state-of-the-art methodologies, in an extensible software platform.
