Tsunami-Safe

Team Name: 
The Motley Few

What happens when you're in the middle of town and a tsunami is coming?

How did I travel today? Drive? Walk? Ride my bike?

How do I know where to go and how to get there? What is my fastest route?

Living between two techtonic plates and perched at the edge of the Hikirangi trench, these are risks that Hawke's Bay residents face every day. A large earthquake here may give less than 10 minutes warning for people to flee to safe ground. Will it be long enough? Can we provide something to increase the preparedness and resilience of these residents?

This information exists in Council websites and mapping, but it is not easy to find and in the heat of the moment may be difficult to access (and even harder to interpret). In the panic could a user quickly and accurately locate it? What if we could provide a solution that was available at the click of a button?

This lifesaving question can be answered using open data; by mashing up mapping tools (geo-location/GPS/directions/method of travel/distance estimations) and overlaying contour data and evacuation routes, this web-application may be the best chance you have at making it to safe ground.

Used as base mapping for user interface. PLEASE NOTE: We are still dealing with a routing issue which when the GPS moves to another location the route is not re-positioned (a new route is established with the old one still overlayed). Didn't have time to fix this bug.
