NZ to have world-leading natural hazard risk modelling tool

EQC, GNS Science and NIWA have joined forces to further develop world-leading natural hazards risk modelling for New Zealand.

RiskScape is risk modelling software that lets users assess risk to buildings, infrastructure and people from natural hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis and floods.

RiskScape has been developed jointly by GNS Science and NIWA with the next general release due in mid-2020. The tool is based on open source technology, providing access for researchers and people working in disaster risk management to improve understanding of natural hazard risks in New Zealand and further afield.
