Project Overview

Greco-RisksProject Overview

Greco-Risks delivers an online GIS platform for hazard and risk analysis and mapping that forms as an “IT umbrella” for nine prevailing hazards of Greece.

SMEs and Research Organizations are collaborating for the establishment of a unique scientific and technological tool with high social and economical significance. Applications can vary; from National and Local Civil Protection Authorities’ needs to Insurance Companies’ needs or other stakeholders that are involved or interested in risk analysis, risk management, crisis prevention and crisis management.

The Platform

The Greco-Risks platform includes hazard and risk maps, simulated hazard scenarios, daily risk map updates for meteorologically affected hazards, an evacuation model, as well as basic information on the analyzed hazards.

The Greco-Risks tool can be extended to other European or non-European areas under the same or similar methodologies for map creation and risk analysis.

The Hazards

Greco-Risks offers risk analysis services through mapping for the following nine prevailing hazards in Greece:

• Earthquake
• Forest Fire
• Landslide
• Ground Deformation
• Volcano
• Tsunami
• Adverse Weather
• Floods
• Industrial Accident

Civilians can view a limited number of produced maps. Civil Protection Authorities, Insurance Companies and other interested parties can contact the Administrator for further demonstration and access to the platform services. Please contact us here, including your contact information and a brief description of the nature of your interest.

The Technology

Greco-Risks is a dynamic real time extendable GIS platform with communication enabled technologies and copyright-free background data. The platform incorporates algorithms for the execution of online processing and map creation and allows for the update of data and extension of the area of interest through a controlled and secure environment of authorized users.

Interested Parties

Parties interested in the Greco-Risks tool, services and possible extensions are encouraged to contact the Administrator for a demonstration of the tool and for discussing the potential for collaboration.

The Seimological Laboratory belongs to the Department of Geophysics and Geothermics of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. It is situated at the Geology Faculty Building in Panepistimioupolis. Its space facilities include offices, laboratories, auditorium and recording instrument rooms. The Laboratory first operated in 1929. Ever since, its major axes of contribution have been the education of students as well as the monitoring of seismicity of the area of Greece, in cooperation with the Geodynamic Institute of the National Observatory of Athens. Major contributions and progresses were made in the fields of Seismology and Geophysics over the years, which have been equally recognized by the Greek and the international scientific community. The large number of scientific publications in international and Greek scientific journals, the participation in conferences, the organization of international conferences, seminars and lectures and the Greek and EU research contracts, exhibit the competitive status of the Laboratory, not only on Greek, but also on an international basis.
