OpenQuake is being developed by GEM, the Global Earthquake Model, a global collaborative effort to develop tools and resources for stakeholders worldwide to assess and understand earthquake risk, as a basis to increase resilience to these often devastating events.
OpenQuake refers to all tools, apps and IT-infrastructure being developed to support GEM’s stakeholders in assessing risk. The core of OpenQuake is the web-based risk assessment platform, which will offer an integrated environment for modeling, viewing, exploring, and managing earthquake risk. But there is more.. a variety of tools and even databases can be used independently, so users can use GEM’s resources and tols in a flexible way, adjusted to their needs.
We have moved all information, request-forms for the online OATS service, downloads and news to our new website.
beta.globalquakemodel.org features all background information on GEM on the one hand, and on OpenQuake and its various components on the other. Check it out!
