Global tsunami hazard

Description: 

The input tsunami hazard data are based on the global hazard analysis of Davies et al. (2017), developed jointly by Geoscience Australia and NGI, formatted for use in ThinkHazard!. The data serves as data for Global Tsunami Model (GTM, http://globaltsunamimodel.org/). The global tsunami dataset contains maximum inundation heights, calculated at offshore hazard points and projected to shoreline by simple interpolation. Tsunami Maximum Inundation Height (MIH) is defined as the largest elevation the tsunami reaches above still water level,...

Pakistan - Electricity Transmission Network

Description: 

The transmission network map is obtained from the OpenStreetMap (OSM) database version 06.Feb.2017. The level of completeness varies across different areas due to poor satellite/aerial imagery and/or resolution in some areas, and due to a lack of OSM editors to help improve the data. If you are interested in improving this dataset, you can do so by further digitizing the available imagery with the in-browser OSM ID Editor - http://ideditor.com/ using the guidance available on the OSM Wiki - https://...
