Vulnerability will be evaluated by a regional bibliographic studies and insitu. One andalusian vulnerability map will be achieved. An integrated hazard map will be addressed in three levels: static-structural, environmental-air and anthopic hazards. As a result of the process, the weathering patterns forms of building materials of andalusian cities will be valued and vulnerability perimeters will be established by greographical information system (GIS).
