Hazard mapping, spatial modelling and analysis

Spatial modelling allows the physical components of a landscape to be represented digitally, making complex analysis a relatively simple task.

We take snapshots of the Earth to illustrate the extent and impacts of natural hazards. We can identify existing areas that are vulnerable, and areas to avoid when considering new developments or relocating communities after a disaster.
