[SVC48-09] Development of G-EVER volcanic hazard assessment support system, and earthquake and volcanic hazard information system
Keywords:G-EVER, volcanic hazard mitigation, hazard assessment, simulation, Asia Pacific, International Standadization
The Asia-Pacific region earthquake and volcanic hazard mapping project aims to make an advanced online hazard information system (ccop-geoinfo.org/G-EVER) that provides past and recent earthquake and volcanic hazards information and links to global earthquake and volcanic eruption databases. It could also be used as earthquake and volcanic hazard risk assessment tool. The information system also shows tsunami inundation areas, active faults distributions and hazard maps. The online hazard information system provides useful information about earthquake and volcanic hazards in an interactive and user-friendly interface. This project will be implemented with the cooperation of major research institutes and organizations in the Asia-Pacific region such as the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (CVGHM) of Indonesia and Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS).
The Coordinating Committee for Geoscience Programmes in East and Southeast Asia (CCOP) and Geological Survey of Japan (GSJ) started the CCOP-GSJ Geoinformation Sharing Infrastructure for East and Southeast Asia (GSi) project. The project aims to compile various geoscientific information in CCOP countries and develop a Web-based database and Geographic Information System (Web-GIS) using Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) based standards. The preliminary portal site of the project (ccop-geoinfo.org/GeoPortal) provides spatial data about geohazards, geology, geoenvironment, groundwater, mineral resources, remote sensing, geophysical and topography covering the countries in East and Southeast Asia. Development of spatial data model standard, data integration and sharing and capacity building are the major targets of this project.
