Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to provide the very
informative information that your email messages present.
Do you know if BSSC and/or FEMA, working with E. V. Leyendecker, USGS, is
going to provide the MCE earthquake hazard data on a CD-ROM for the 1997
and/or 2000 NEHRP Provisions? Asking the same question in a different form,
will ICC provide the MCE earthquake hazard data on CD-ROM for the 2000 IBC?
It is obvious that the 2000 IBC, Figure 1615 series maps are not readily
useable in their 2000 IBC, July 1998 Final Draft format.
Do you know if some agency (ASCE, BSSC, and/or FEMA), working with E. V.
Leyendecker, will provide the ASCE/FEMA 273 and ASCE/FEMA 310 Standards
earthquake hazard data for the FEMA 273 Basic Safety Earthquake 1 (BSE-1) and
Basic Safety Earthquake 2 (BSE-2) on a CD-ROM?
Do you know what the CD-ROM format might be? By Zip Code, by latitude and
longitude, and/or some other location designator?
By copy of this email message to others listed in the "CC" list, I am also
asking them if they have any information concerning the answers to the above
questions in this email message that they would be willing to share with the
SEAOSC List Service.
