IHCantabria releases new update for IH Tsunamis System


Panguna 22012017

IH Tsunamis System is an operational system that calculates the propagation of the tsunamis in case they occur using near real time earthquakes data provided by international agencies (i.e. USGS) to run, on the fly, the numerical simulation of any possible tsunami.

In august 2015, the Web app http://tsunami.ihcantabria.com/ started to provide free access to the visualization of the tsunami modelling service.

In august 2016, the mobile app (android based), IHTSUSY, started to provide free access and service to end users. IHTSUSY was awarded as “the best mobile app at the Premios Cantabria Digital 2016”. IHCantabria has been working hard to improve the service and today we are pleased to realese a new version of the System.

Several new features and important performance improvements are listed:

- New tsunami travel time layer with contour visualization and a faster simulation. Available within seconds once focal mechanism data are complete.

- Better layer's visualization with improved colors palettes and legends.

- Several UI improvements for the web and app interfaces.

- Earthquake focal mechanism represented as a “Beachball” image.

- Direct link to a specific event.

- Improved notifications system. Now you get notified when the simulation finish and the results are available.

- Important code changes to improve performance

- Fixed some minor bugs.
