For experienced structural engineers it might be obvious what the different attributes of the GEM Building Taxonomy are and why they are of relevance to estimating and understanding seismic risk. But as for everything in GEM, we would like all products and outcomes to be as easy as possible to use, so that we can really learn, assess risk and work together, to reduce vulnerability to earthquakes.

The GEM-EERI team working on the GEM Building Taxonomy therefore developed this great, creative video! Feel free to share with colleagues and friends, and let us know if you have ideas for videos or other material that can help people to better understand other GEM products or work!
