New version of RiskScape

New Version of RiskScape is now Live!

RiskScape version 1.0, which is now available for download, has an improved user interface and map viewer, updated vulnerability models, flexible export options and other many other new features. For example, you can now run exposure analysis as well as more complex estimations of loss.

Guides for the installation and use of RiskScape, as well as technical information, are available on the RiskScape wiki, and you can get help with any tricky bits via the helpdesk.

One of the great new features is a conversion tool that can take any pre-V1.0 RiskScape layers (previously called "modules") that you have created and convert them for the current version.

We hope that users of RiskScape will also find the registration process to be much easier. RiskScape version 1.0 will automatically guide you through the registration process once you open the tool for the first time.

RiskScape is a constantly evolving tool and we value your feedback. If you have any issues or suggestions, please let our team know through the helpdesk.

Project lead Kate Crowley says

‘The RiskScape project is beginning a new chapter of collaboration. Although, as always, we are keen to receive feedback we want to take this a step further. We want to explore ways of designing new features together, gain a deeper dialogue and guidance with our partners and users and encourage a celebration of our applied research and practice successes.’

Finally, the RiskScape team at NIWA and GNS Science would like to thank those of you who have been involved in testing version 1 and in helping us to improve the tool. We look forward to working with you all in the future.
