Product Description

UP Noah (University of Philippines Operational Assessment of Hazard Centers) provides a way to raise awareness of hazards and extreme events (floods, landslides, storm surges, volcanoes and earthquakes) in the Philippines, by mapping the risk areas through the cartographic information of the satellite Himawari. It provides users with data on the temporal and physical location and the grade of an event to manage events in advance.

The University of Philippines, the creator of this service, is located in Quezon City, Philippines.

Design Specifications

UP Noah provides a way to raise community awareness of hazards and extreme events in the Philippines, to increase preparedness and reduce the catastrophic impacts of extreme hazard events. UP Noah uses real time images of satellite Himawari 8 to conduct its analyses. An internet connection is required for use. By using UP Noah's online map it is possible to view real-time risk situations. The user can input the specific location and search on the bar zoom. The color of the map shows the height of the funds that can be caused by continuous heavy rainfall and the legend on the left side of the screen shows the height of the flood.

Manufacturer Specified Performance Parameters

Cultivate a culture of preparedness and reduce the catastrophic impacts of extreme hazard events. Provide high-resolution hazard maps for floods, landslides, and storm surges. Deliver a near real-time warning systems for floods for communities living along 18 major river systems in the Philippines.

Vetted Performance Status

The capacities of the results for the satellite images depend on the sensors, the characteristics of Himawari 8 and 9 in Philippines area are the following ones:

Observations per timelines Time cycle (min.) Observations per day
