Global Hazards Info Network


The GHIN allows our partners to easily search, review, and access our data. It saves us a lot of effort and adds tremendous value to the data we have and the work we do.

Sharing Global Data

Launch GHIN

The Global Hazards Information Network (GHIN) is a partnership of national and international organizations providing decision makers access to high-quality geospatial information for risk assessment, early warning, response, and other disaster management-related activities. Hosted by PDC, GHIN maintains a web-accessible catalog of data available from GHIN partners.

GHIN Data and Map Services Include:

  • Real-time hazard incident data
  • Hazard model outputs
  • Historical hazard information
  • Real-time meteorological observations and forecasts
  • Base map data, such as infrastructure, hydrography, and emergency services
  • Demographic and socio-economic data
  • High-resolution satellite imagery
  • Topographic data and digital elevation models



If your organization has data relevant to the disaster management community anywhere in the world, PDC encourages you to become a GHIN partner. Partnerships are formalized through the University of Hawaii, PDC’s managing partner, and include “startup kits” to ensure that data sources meet internationally recognized standards.
