Earthquake Response Visualizer (ERV)

Team Name: 
Masters of Disaster

How does CCC prioritise which buildings to assess after an earthquake based on the likelihood of damage and liquefaction occurring?

Supporting the Christchurch rebuild and more accurate and useful ways to identify damage across city assets and buildings quickly and easily.​​​​​​​

Sensor-Based Earthquake Response System for Council Building Inspections

Introducing: ERV - The Earthquake Response Visualizer

Software and Services: Our system takes in GeoNET motion sensor data,; the hundreds of City Sensor data, merged with the City building locations and quickly highlights a prioritised order of the first buildings that need inspecting, just after a signficant earthquake event.  This is more accurate than the current magnitude and distance from epicenter approach, as it can create a velocity gravity impact vector for every lat, long in the city - and provide this data in an easy to interpret 3D contouring view.  The dataset created is also valuable for city managers, engineers, business owners and citizens in the city.  All buidling owners will TXT contacts will be contacted with their status: RED, YELLOW or GREEN.

Core Data: Sensor velocity map overlaid with all buildings of interest, along with a list of sites inspections in order of priority.

Visual Exports: HoloLens 3D App, PC App (3D), Website (2D), Phone (2D + PDF).
