As described in the teleconference notice, the two pieces of software are:
- "The Land Use Portfolio Model (LUPM), a scenario-based risk-analysis tool developed to provide information to support decisions on investing in natural-hazard mitigation measures. HAZUS damage probabilities and loss estimates are key sources of data for the LUPM calculations and critical to assessing the utility of mitigation investments.
- The HAZUS-MH Data Extractor (Beta v1.0), which lets users extract HAZUS damage and loss-estimate data from an earthquake or flood analysis to a geodatabase for future use. The data extractor was originally developed to prepare HAZUS output data for input to the LUPM, but it can be useful for a variety of purposes."

Comment: HAZUS User Group calls are conducted on a regular basis and are recorded. A link to access information related to these calls and other HUG efforts has been added to the right side bar.
