To address the overall requirements of IKCEST and user requirements, Disaster Risk Reduction Knowledge Service System, DRRKS’s portal system upgraded the “Global Earthquake Daily Distribution Map Service” module, developed the “Global Earthquake Daily Distributed Automated Mapping Tool”, and added the “Newsletters” section. The new features were released at the end of March 2019.

DRRKS upgraded the “Global Earthquake Daily Distribution Map Service” module. The visualization application of global seismic location distribution on homepage is an online application based on WebGIS development that invokes the seismic data interface issued by the United States Geological Survey, USGS. The original source position label was modified to dots of different colors to distinguish the difference in magnitude. This small change will make it easy for users to understand where a serious earthquake occurred.

Often, the archived data are also very important, so DRRKS has recently developed the “Global Earthquake Daily Distributed Automated Mapping Tool”. A mapping script tool based on the global seismic daily distribution map service application was developed, and the daily seismic distribution in the form of pictures in the website module can be archived and published. Maps are drawn by the open source GIS tool “Basemap” which is archived by year and month. Users can choose different years and months to view the relevant earthquake distribution map; different magnitudes are displayed in different colors.

“Newsletters” is an information push project launched by DRRKS in 2019. We have developed a separate layout for displaying archived documents. It is convenient for users to browse and view historical documents.
