The CSMIP-3DV software system has been developed under Agreement No. 1002-776 between California Geologic Survey (CGS) and John A. Martin & Associates, Inc. This system illustrates more than ever that seismic instrumentation of buildings is vital for learning from performance of buildings during earthquakes, enhancing engineering practice, and further development of seismic code provisions. The state-of-the-art features of CSMIP-3DV, for the first time, make it possible to evaluate seismic performance of dozens of buildings over many earthquakes in a systematic, consistent, and user-friendly manner. It is anticipated that by the end of the year 2004 CSMIP-3DV users will be able to investigate more than 80 instrumented buildings. Soon thereafter, the entire collection of more than 180 instrumented buildings will be implemented in CSMIP-3DV.
