In the event of a tsunami, approximately 1.38% of Vancouver’s total area will be in danger. To get the percentage of Vancouver’s total area in danger, I summed up all the areas in danger (I got 1807225.594473 m2) and then I got the City of Vancouver’s total area from the “Vancouvermask” (which was 131033339.950334 m2). I divided the amount of area in danger by the total area in the City of Vancouver (1807225.594473 / 131033339.950334) x 100% and I got 1.38%.
Healthcare facilities in the Vancouver danger zone: FALSE CREEK RESIDENCE, VILLA CATHAY CARE HOME, BROADWAY PENTECOSTAL LODGE, YALETOWN HOUSE SOCIETY.

To get to my answer, I went into the Arctoolbox function under Analysis Tools, clicked on intersect, and put in “Education” and “Vancouver_Danger” into the input features. This would find the points of education that intersect with/fall in the Vancouver danger zone. Then I pressed “ok” and named it Vancouver_education. I then re-did it for the healthcare data. After I got the points of educational facilities and healthcare facilities that are in the Vancouver danger zone, I checked their attributes table by right slicking on the layer to find the names of these facilities

- Managed and changed data projections in order to fix misaligned and improperly referenced data
- Conducted a basic geographic analysis involving buffers and reclassification on the City of Vancouver to determine areas vulnerable to possible tsunamis
