The Challenge: Unifying Disaster Data from Diverse Sources

In the realm of disaster management, different data providers have different event data standards. Integrating data from multiple sources into a single internal system becomes complex and cumbersome. While global and local data suppliers offer valuable insights, they often fall short of providing a comprehensive and cohesive picture of disaster-related information.

Our Solution: Disaster Tracking System for Informed Decisions

At Kontur, we provide a comprehensive solution to the challenges posed by inconsistent disaster data. We offer two key functionalities to empower our customers:

  • Data Aggregation and Standardization: Kontur efficiently gathers and harmonizes data from a wide array of providers. By unifying disparate data standards, we simplify the integration process, enabling seamless data compatibility within your internal systems.
  • Data Enrichment: To further enhance the value of the data, we enrich it using Kontur’s analytical information. This augmentation ensures that the disaster-related information you receive is not only comprehensive but also tailored to meet your specific requirements.

What Our Customers Gain:

  • Easy Data Integration: With Kontur Event Feed, data integration becomes effortless, allowing you to focus on making timely and well-informed decisions without being burdened by technical complexities.

How it works

Recent and Historical Natural Disaster Database 

Kontur Event Feed aggregates data from various reputable organizations, such as GDACS, EM-DAT, FIRMS, CalFire, NIFC, NOAA, and many others. Our platform merges the same events from different sources, ensuring you have access to the most comprehensive and reliable data available for each event.

Exploring the Dynamic Nature of Disasters

Understanding the progression of a disaster is crucial for effective disaster management. To facilitate this, we present a comprehensive timeline of how disasters unfold over time, presented in the form of episodes.

Think of episodes as the building blocks of the disaster timeline. Each Episode represents a distinct phase or stage within the disaster’s development. From the initial warning signs to the peak of the crisis and through the recovery process, Episodes capture the dynamic nature of disasters. Our platform organizes and categorizes these phases, enabling users to better understand the disaster’s evolution.

Additional Disaster Insights with Data Enrichment

Enriching disaster-related information with vital analytics is at the core of Kontur Event Feed’s capabilities. Using our dataset collection, we compute a range of crucial analytics for each disaster, providing you with comprehensive insights to enhance your disaster management strategies.
