The ATC-54 Report, Guidelines for Utilizing Strong-Motion Data and ShakeMaps in Postearthquake Response, prepared by the Applied Technology
Council for the California Geological Survey, 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.
