RiskScape provides a modular framework to estimate impacts and losses for assets exposed to natural hazards. The software combines hazard, asset and vulnerability layers, through a data selection process, to quantify a range of economic and social consequences. This helps practitioners make informed decisions on natural hazard management activities.
RiskScape currently provides for six natural hazard types:
RiskScape software is under constant development to increase the range of hazard types available.
RiskScape currently provides for nine asset types:
New assets will be added to RiskScape in the future.
RiskScape tools enable users to build their own hazard and asset modules, then import these for impact and loss modelling. User developed modules can be used independently or in combination with RiskScape provided modules. A planned vulnerability module builder will enable users to be completely self-sufficient in module development.
