Process for Preparation of Survey Information for Analysis

Analysis Process Flow Diagram

The Design Team has developed a process to guide and standardize the preparation of databases for subsequent analysis.

The next step combines all the information on a site into a Site Status file, i.e. design, evaluation, reconnaissance, and data collected.

Go to Site Status Categories and their Design Impacts for additional information.

An illustrative example of this process is presented based on the EMAP Western Pilot Program.
