Welcome to our Risklayer Explorer. Please select a layer from the menu on the top left to discover our data layers.

Changing Risk

Hazard and risk are no constants. They can change over time either due to developments in exposure and vulnerability as a consequence of human activity or by variations in external hazards e.g. due to a changing climate.

This panel shows you today's risk radar and line-histograms showing you the distribution of risk for each peril accross the population for today's and future conditions (if known, otherwise constant)

Natural Hazards

Natural hazards are diverse and their impact on each region unique. If a region is affected by a certain peril, its hazard can be quantified both by expected maximum impact within a certain time period or average annual conditions.

This panel shows you different perspectives on natural hazards affecting Costa Rica contextualized towards their actual risk to the society and in absolute numbers.
