· Locate each of the interviewed households in Google map (personalized Google map under Google Drive) giving them unique code and description

· Compute all of the social-ecological data of a household or of a place/cluster with their addresses and assess social-ecological vulnerability

· Using Google street locate all the addresses stored into Google Sheet or in MS Excel

· Use Map street add-on and link the spreadsheet addresses into Google map to show the ‘locations’ or import the addresses from Google sheet to ‘my places’ Provide people awareness about the use of map to inform and or assist emergency/disaster responses
