HazardHunterPH is a tool that can be used to generate indicative hazard assessment reports on the user's specified location. It is helpful as a reference of property owners, buyers, land developers, planners, and other stakeholders needing immediate hazard information and assessment. It aims to increase people's awareness to natural hazards and advocates the implementation of plans to prepare for and mitigate the effects of hazards.
All information used for the calculation of hazard assessment results are based on the most recent updates provided by the corresponding mandated government agencies through the GeoRiskPH Integrated System. To know more about other archived data or more detailed information about the hazards, please contact DOST-PHIVOLCS for seismic and volcanic hazards, and DOST-PAGASA and DENR-MGB for hydro-meteorological/climatological hazards.
HazardHunterPH is a product of GeoRisk Philippines, a multi-agency initiative led by DOST-PHIVOLCS and participated by DOST-PAGASA, DOST-ASTI, DENR-MGB, DENR-NAMRIA, DND-OCD, and DepEd. GeoRiskPH acknowledges the valuable contribution of the Geological Survey of Japan for training the team in developing the application.
HazardHunterPH consumes existing information as provided by agencies to the GeoRiskPH Integrated System. Since some data used for calculations may be outdated, GeoRiskPH will not be liable for results that may differ from actual data. Also, hazards information may be refined and updated as new data become available to the system. As for point data for schools and health facilities, they may not represent the actual location of the facility, and may need further verification. Similarly, administrative boundaries and the scope of the hazard may not fit well when calculating for their intersection. Hence, users are advised to view the hazard map overlain with the administrative boundary to visually verify how much of the area is within the scope of the hazard. Lastly, it should be noted that administrative boundaries used are only an approximate, and are not considered authoritative.
