PacRIS is a geographic Information (GIS) platform designed to provide the Pacific Island Countries, development partners and the private sector with the data and tools needed to develop disaster risk reduction applications. PCRAFI assembled, processed, developed, and organized the largest collection of geo-referenced data for hazard modeling in the region: Satellite imagery Topographic maps Bathymetry maps Surface geology maps Surface soil maps Land Cover/Land Use maps Geodetic and fault data Historical catalogs of tropical cyclones and earthquakes PCRAFI produced detailed probabilistic hazard models for all 15 countries, such as Tropical Cyclones with Winds, Storm Surge, Rain Earthquake with Ground-shaking, and Tsunami.
