Export Your Results
Decide whether you would like to export your results at an aggregated or per-asset scale, and click on the appropriate icon
Per-asset results will show the estimated results for individual assets (buildings, etc.) and appear as points on a map, or individual entries for each asset in a spreadsheet.
Aggregated results will appear according to the option you selected in the Aggregation box within the Analysis tab when you were running your scenario.
We will use the aggregated option. If you would like to use the per-asset option instead, click the ‘per asset’ icon and continue following the steps below.
Click ‘Export' and then ‘Next’
Comma Separated Value (CSV) files are for importing into spreadsheets (e.g. Excel). ESRI Shapefiles are for importing into Geographical Information Systems (GIS) software Google Earth files can be added into Google Earth and Google Earth Pro. This function has not yet been activated for RiskScape, but will be soon!

Conduct further analysis of the results as required by opening the results in the appropriate software.
We have opened our CSV file in Excel. Because we used the ‘grid’ aggregation option, our results are summarised for each grid – 930 in the Wellington area we selected. We have summed the ‘severely’ and ‘critically’ damaged buildings (columns H and I) to answer our target question:
An estimated 1490 buildings would be severely or critically damaged in Wellington as a result of an earthquake with the same parameters as the 1855 Wairarapa earthquake.
These results are shown on a graph.
