9-10 JUNE 2015

The RASOR project hosted its first user workshop on 8 and 9 June, 2015. Some 20 users from a wide range of backgrounds joined members of the RASOR Consortium in exercises to demonstrate the risk assessment capabilities of the RASOR platform. User came from national civil protection agencies (such as those of Jamaica, Italy and Greece), form specialized institutes such as PusAir, the Indonesian flood research institute, from international organisations such as the World Bank, the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH), and UNOSAT, from NGOs such as Map
Action, or from future value-adding partners such as the Global Earthquake Model or ITHACA.
The organizations represented came from the Caribbean, Southeast Asia and Europe. After a half day introduction to the platform, the users were given concrete assignments over Haiti
RASOR Platform.

The RASOR Platform offers a single work environment that generates new risk information across hazards, across data types (satellite EO, in-situ), across user communities (global, local, climate, civil protection, insurance, etc.) and across the world.
and Indonesia, where data from the case study areas were used to examine past events and simulate new scenarios to support risk reduction measures.
The ‘alpha’ version of the platform has been made available for users to continue trying out the tool.
Interested users should contact info@rasor-project.eu to obtain a user name and password for alpha testing access. The operational version of the platform will be released to the public in early 2016.
