Data for Vertical Land Motion and Building Damage Risk for the Indian Megacities

The dataset contains the building damage risk map for the fast growing Indian megacities: New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, and Kolkata, based on the vertical land motion map.

Researchers can use ArcGIS/QGIS or any other programming languages supporting GeoTIFF format to extract the values along with the latitude and longitude.
