Version 0.1 of the OpenQuake Manual has been published today. This manual provides users of OpenQuake the knowledge to configure OpenQuake, build input models for both Hazard and Risk and understand the various outputs. The manual provides step by step instruction on how to build an Input model with descriptions for each of the parameters. We plan to continue to update the manual over the coming weeks and months as the features set continues to expand.
The Manual is being drafted using the same open source practices as the source code of OpenQuake, i.e. using a distributed version control system on GitHub, where all the latex files are openly available. This allows the various contributors and authors of the manual to work together on the manual, without need to continuously exchange Word documents. Git then assures that all contributions are properly merged. We hope that in the near future, when other scientists and developers contribute to the source code of OpenQuake, they will also contribute to keeping the OpenQuake Manual up-to-date.
