The central Italy earthquake occurred on 24 August 2016 at 03:36 AM local time. The magnitude is listed as M6.0 by INGV and M6.2 by USGS. The Italy-US GEER team effort combines traditional reconnaissance activities of on-ground recording and mapping of field conditions, with advanced imaging and damage detection routines enabled by state-of-the-art geomatics technology. We describe preliminary findings useful for the broad technical community, emergency responders, and general public. These findings concern attributes of the causative fault system, surface fault rupture, recorded ground motions, landslides and rockfalls, damage to building structures and their spatial patterns, and damage to other types of structures, including bridges.
