New Hazards Mapper Tool from SEDAC

A new Hazards Mapper tool from Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC; WDS Regular Member) combines layers from various sources to enable users to visualize data and maps related to socioeconomic, infrastructure, natural disasters, and environment topics, as well as analyze potential impacts and exposure.

More information on point features such as power plants can be obtained by simply clicking on them, where—in this instance—the outputs for the past 10 years are depicted using a line graph. Users can also define an area of interest on a map by drawing a circle or polygon around it to obtain an estimate of the total population and land area enclosed within the boundary.

The SEDAC Hazards Mapper can be found here.
