This paper describes portions of the document, Guidelines for Using Strong-Motion Data for Postearthquake Response and Postearthquake
Structural Evaluation, currently being developed by the Applied Technology Council (ATC) for the California Division of Mines and
Geologys (CDMG) Strong Motion Instrumentation Program (SMIP) 2000 Data Interpretation Project. The focus of this paper is on the use
of computer-generated ground- motion maps, i.e., TriNet ShakeMaps, for post-earthquake response applications. Two companion papers
presented at the SMIP02 Seminar, both by C. Rojahn et al., focus, respectively, on the overall description of the Guidelines and on
the use of strong-motion data for structural evaluation. The procedures outlined in this paper are a summary of the information contained
in the current draft of the document, which addresses ShakeMap applications for ten areas of post-earthquake response. The general framework
is given here, with illustration for one application damaged buildings and safety inspections.
