China Earthquake Geospatial Research Portal
Entry ID: CEGRP
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: This portal has been established in response to the severe earthquake that struck Sichuan, China on May 12th 2008. Recognizing that the event has had tragic consequences for the people in the effected areas, this portal will use GIS to integrate and analyze the best information at hand as quickly as possible. We hope to establish a baseline of data about the impacts of the earthquake on the local population, and we invite you to work with us to analyze, revise, and update this information.

The goal is to make the latest GIS data both searchable and freely available to everyone--individual researchers, relief agencies, news organizations, decision makers--to speed the assistance to the hardest hit localities today, to support longer term damage assessment and rehabilitation, and to provide a permanent archive for future research.
