Since May 2018, the RiskScape team have been working on a flexible and modular tool for risk modelling...
The first version of RiskScape has been used for some important and exciting work and has made a difference in understanding natural hazard risk in New Zealand and around the Pacific. We have learned a lot and would like to thank our partners who have worked with us along the journey. But technology and user needs are changing so it’s time for re-development. This will give us the opportunity to build New Zealand’s risk tool to better meet user needs.
Software development for RiskScape version 2.0 has been underway since 2018. The work programme includes continuing to develop RiskScape’s core engine, with a focus on risk model workflow functionality, optimisation and performance enhancements.
We ran a roadshow of national workshops and an online survey in November 2019 to collect user needs of RiskScape 2.0 (thanks to everyone who contributed!) and are now writing a report to inform future decisions. We are enabling access to the beta version of RiskScape 2.0 for a limited number of New Zealand researchers who will be trialling the tool.
We are hard at work and focused on developing RiskScape 2.0. As a result version 1.0 support is now only available from our technical wiki, which includes tutorials and work-arounds for known technical issues.
