Geohazard - Natural Hazards

Geohazard - Natural Hazards


Geohazard provides information on natural hazards recently occurred or expected. Latest information is harvested from data sources of various organisations around the world. So far information is provided on earthquake, tsunami, flood, cyclone, and volcano events.

Additionally Geohazard can be used to immediately send eyewitness reports to an instance of the crowd-mapping platform Ushahidi. These reports, containing geographical information, damage estimations, event description and pictures, can be used to serve a better situation picture of a related event for interested parties.

Geohazard is a BETA version, yet. It has been designed, implemented and tested in a research project. Geohazard is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but without any warranty; without even the implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular use. Feedback and suggestions for improvements are very welcome and can be sent directly via the 'About' menu item. Some, hopefully less important, issues are known already and will be addressed in future versions.

Earthquake data sources: BGS, BMKG, EMSC, GA, GDACS, GFZ, GNS, IPMA, IRIS, KOERI, NOA, NRCan, SGS, USGS
Cyclone data sources: GDACS
Flood data sources:GDACS
Tsunami data sources: NOAA WCATWC, NOAA PTWC Caribbean, NOAA PTWC Hawaii, NOAA PTWC Pacific
Volcano data sources: GNS, USGS

Keywords: earthquake, tsunami, flood, cyclone, volcano, natural hazard, ushahidi, alerts, reports, magnitude, saffir–simpson hurricane wind scale

Recent changes:
App version 1.0.5: NOAA data sources have been extended and can be selected independently of each other. Added option to open location access settings if GPS or WiFi location sources are disabled. Favourites map shows all marked events. Changed default data source selection. Enabled app for Android 4.3. Fixed minor bugs.

Nice, but... I wish I knew what the different colors on the magnitudes meant. I thought they were to do with the EMS scale but some of them correspond to a color that falls into a different magnitude set. A little confusing...
