The ATC-54 Report, Guidelines for Using Strong-Motion Data for Postearthquake Response and Postearthquake Structural Evaluation,
under preparation by the Applied Technology Council for the California Division of Mines and Geology, provides guidance on (1)
the use of near-real-time computer-generated ground-motion maps in emergency response, and (2) the use and interpretation of strong-motion
data to evaluate the earthquake response of buildings, bridges, and dams in the immediate postearthquake aftermath. Guidance is also
provided on the collection of data describing the characteristics and performance of structures in which, or near which, strong-motion
data have been recorded.
