Short summary
The core contribution of this study is a new earthquake disaster loss estimation method for earthquake emergency response based on dasymetric exposure data, which consists of two phases: a pre-earthquake phase and a co-earthquake phase. This method can not only improve the speed and accuracy of earthquake disaster estimation for co-earthquake response, but it also provides the spatial distribution of possible deaths and building damage.
