GeoMapperPH is an application developed by GeoRisk Philippines which serves as a platform for national government agencies, local government units, and non-government organizations to access, utilize, and contribute data to the GeoRiskPH integrated database. It is designed to facilitate the easy collection and updating of hazards, exposure, vulnerability, and coping capacity data to support the decision-making process before, during, and after disasters.

The application includes dashboards which reflect real-time data updates and analytics, helping different sectors make data-informed decisions for disaster risk reduction and disaster response more efficiently.

With this, GeoMapperPH is the primary platform for data collection in building the country’s National Exposure Database, envisioned to make planning and damage and risk assessments more comprehensive and accurate.

HazardHunterPH, GeoAnalyticsPH, and GeoMapperPH are products of the GeoRiskPH project, a multi-agency initiative led by DOST-PHIVOLCS, funded by DOST, and monitored by DOST-Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD).
