ADAM Automatic Disaster Analysis & Mapping

Automated alert system providing near real-time information on disasters to enhance immediate humanitarian response.


ADAM Earthquakes

Within a few minutes following an earthquake, ADAM automatically creates a dashboard with the most important information on the event. After a couple of hours, a ShakeMap dashboard is generated, as a follow-up, to provide further information regarding the possible impact on the population. Subscriptions are open to members of the Humanitarian Community (UN agencies, NGOs, Institutions, Ministries etc.). General public can receive updates via the Twitter page.
