Prioritization of old urban fabrics models based on the damages caused by the earthquake, Case Study: Ghouchan, Iran
According to the conducted investigations, the greatest losses will occur in old and ancient parts of cities if the earthquake happens. Therefore, one of the urban managers’ principal concerns is locating these areas to provide emergency aids. For this reason, this study aims at determining these areas in Ghouchan city and then by taking advantage of the analytical power of GIS software, first the indices of determination the old context were prioritized. Accordingly, we can introduce the regions with the highest rate of vulnerability in two forms of descriptive and spatial. The results showed that the area of interest is mainly located in the central and western part of the city. According to this model, it is necessary to consider essential predication for the establishment and installation of facilities and relief equipment as well as appropriate uses in accordance with the relief in the region due to the possible vulnerability rate. In descriptive analyses we also estimate the rate of vulnerability and thus the residential, commercial, service and industrial applications have the most vulnerability.
