Serving all needs
The OpenQuake Platform brings a great variety of options together for assessing and understanding risk. Many of these need expert knowledge, to be sure that hazard and risk are assessed the right way. But there will also be many results and datasets available that facilitate all of our stakeholders in exploring, understanding and improved decision-making. Beacuse we want to facilitate the needs of our various stakeholder groups we are planning to have customised interfaces and functionalities within the platform. We continue to brainstorm on how we can do this best.
The platform in general will feature the following type of functionaiities. Soon we will be able to link these to specific use-cases (e.g. how can an engineer use the OpenQuake Platform, how can a government official use the OpenQuake Platform, how can a hazard scientists use the platform).
The platform is likely to feature a user-area, that summarizes the users activities in the platform, such as calculations that they have run. Users are interconnected and can share and discuss models, maps and other output.
