Global Hazards Atlas


Communities throughout the Pacific have benefited from your leadership in developing and deploying geospatial technologies. Whether in time of consideration or crisis, the programs you have shepherded increase our understanding of geography and enable all manner of people to assist those in need.

Atlas in Action

Increasing Public Awareness

As Hurricane Sandy swept out of the Caribbean and moved toward the east coast of the U.S. thousands of people turned to PDC's Global Hazards Atlas to monitor the storm's changing path and intensity. Users continued to track the storm as it struck the coast.

One-stop Hazard Information

Launch Global Hazards Atlas

This powerful system provides access to DisasterAWARE's trustworthy near real-time and historical data on natural hazards around the globe—including tropical cyclones, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, wildfires, and more. Users can combine this hazard data with a range other valuable information such as population, infrastructure, and critical facilities. Users of the Global Hazards Atlas can gain a better understanding of events and their potential impact around the globe.  

The Global Hazards Atlas is easy to access from a standard Internet browser.
