Earthquakes, ShakeCast

By: , and 



ShakeCast® – short for ShakeMap Broadcast – is a fully automated software system for delivering specific ShakeMap products to critical users and for triggering established post-earthquake response protocols. ShakeCast is a freely available, postearthquake situational awareness software application that automatically retrieves earthquake shaking data from ShakeMap to compare ground shaking intensity measures against users’ facilities (Lin and Wald 2008). ShakeCast then generates potential damage assessment and inspection priority notifications, maps, and web-based products for critical users, emergency managers, and those on a need-to-know basis.
