All available data from GAR 13's Global Risk Update is provided via this interactive platform for vieweing and downloading.
It is presented in an easily accessible manner, over the Internet.
The global risk update featured in the Global Assessment Report 2015 is based on a joint effort by leading scientific institutions, governments, UN agencies and development banks, the private sector and non-governmental organisations.
This platform is a multiple agencies effort to share spatial data information on global risk from natural hazards. You will be able to visualise, download or extract data on past hazardous events, human & economical hazard exposure and risk from natural hazards. It covers major hazards, initialy tropical cyclones and earthquakes and as it becomes available, information related to storm surges, drought, floods, landslides, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions.
This software was developed by UNISDR in collaboration with ERN, the World Bank and with support of the European Commission, and it is free, open source, under the Apache 2 license. It is conceived to be a module of the CAPRA (Comprehensive Approach to Probabilistic Risk Assessment) software suite of products (see www.ecapra.org), but it can be used in standalone form as a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) and web mapping service for a wide range of applications.
Some of the source code has been taken from the DesInventar open source initiative (see www.desinventar.net) and uses Tomcat, an Apache Software Foundation product (http://www.apache.org).
