This dataset contains building information data of 60 low-rise reinforced concrete buildings that were collected during seismic vulnerability assessment in Mandalay, Myanmar.  The seismic vulnerability survey was performed with a goal to compute the Priority Index proposed by Hassan and Sozen (1997).  Dr. Ian Watkinson worked with a local team to collect a total number of 293 photographs of 60 structures which were constructed with reinforced concrete or concrete masonry units. The latitude, longitude, priority index, no. of floors, 1st floor area, total floor are, column area, concrete wall area, masonry wall area, presence of captive columns, column index, and wall index is provided for the 60 buildings.
