World Housing Encyclopedia

The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute and the International Association for Earthquake Engineering have teamed up to create the World Housing Encyclopedia (WHE): a database that provides information about housing construction in parts of the world vulnerable to earthquakes. As of this write-up, this collection includes 130 reports, which visitors can browse via an interactive map on WHE's homepage. These reports provide details about the type of housing construction by region, along with information about the region's terrain. Visitors can also search this database by building type and by, "how long this construction type has been practiced." As the team behind WHE explains, the aim of this website is to, "encourage the use of earthquake-resistant technologies worldwide."
