boom, whoosh, drip, splash, sparkle [ upbeat music fades in ] Welcome to the “Sharing Results with the Hazus Export Tool” video tutorial. In this video, you will learn how to activate
the Hazus Export Tool and use it to export and share data from a Hazus study region or
scenario into an easily sharable file geodatabase. [ upbeat music ] To use the Hazus Export tool, you’ll first
need to verify that you have a Standard or Advance level ArcGIS license; a Basic license
will not be sufficient to run the tool. Next, you’ll need to add the “Hazus Export”
toolbox to your active toolboxes in Hazus. Open the study region or scenario that you
would like to export data from, then click the “ArcToolbox” button to open the ArcToolbox
panel. Right click on the ArcToolbox folder icon
at the top of the list and select “Add a Toolbox”. You will add the toolbox in the same fashion
as other non-Hazus ArcToolboxes. The default Hazus installation is on your
local C drive, so if you don’t already have a folder connection to that drive, you will
need to create one by clicking the “Connect to Folder” button and navigating to the drive. Once you select the C drive connect, navigate
to “Program Files (x86)”>”Hazus-MH”> “BIN”>”Tools”. Select the “Hazus_Export.tbx” toolbox. Click “Open” and this toolbox will be added
to ArcToolbox. [ upbeat music ] Now that you have successfully added the export tool, you can use it to export data. Expand the “Hazus_Export” tree and double
click the “Hazus_Export” tool to open it. A tool dialog will appear with two required
inputs: the export folder into which your data will be saved and the name of your study
region. Click the folder icon for the “Export Folder”
input, navigate to and select your desired output folder, and then click “Add”. Then enter the name of your study region. Note that this entry must exactly match the
name of your study region, so double check the study region name in the upper left-hand
corner of Hazus. In this case, our scenario is named “Aransas_Nueces_HU”, so we will enter that as the export name. Click “Ok” to run the Hazus data export script. This will export all results for the identified
study region. This could take several minutes to process,
depending on the size of your study region. Once the script has completed, click “Close” to return to your study region. To confirm that your data were successfully
exported, click the “Catalog” button and navigate to the location of your exported data. If you see the databases within the folder,
then the export was successful. Now, you can select and drag data layers from
the geodatabase over to the Table of Contents to view them in Hazus, ArcGIS Desktop, or
ArcGIS Pro. Feature classes can be exported from the file
geodatabase to shapefile or tabular formats for use in non-Esri products. Congratulations! In this video you learned how to activate the Hazus Export Tool and use it to export and share data from a Hazus study region or scenario. Look for more Hazus video tutorials on the
