Abstract

The damage caused by the 1996 Lijiang earthquake in China was analyzed using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Data for the Lijiang district were collected from the local government offices and were converted into GIS data layers. The damage ratio of houses, seismic intensity and the occurrence of casualties were mapped. The results show that the distributions of seismic intensity and the damage ratio of houses reflect the occurrence of thick alluvium and the structure of fault systems.
