Landslide Automated Geospatial Processing Software Using a High-Performance Computer

This software contains the data processing for nationwide landslide research described in Mirus et al. 2024, Parsimonious landslide-susceptibility modeling at continental scales: Application for the conterminous United States, Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico. To perform geospatial processing over the large geographic area, each 1/3 arc-second (10-meter) Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is processed i

DSWE_GEE v1.0.0

Code for implementation of the Dynamic Surface Water Extent algorithm in Google Earth Engine. Multiple scripts allow the creation of single-scene or composited Dynamic Surface Water Extent (DSWE) images from Landsat and MODIS data. All code is written for use in the JavaScript API.

Prism Engine software source code v2.0.0

A continually increasing number of high-quality digital strong-motion records from stations of the National Strong Motion Project (NSMP) of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), as well as data from regional seismic networks within the U.S., called for automated processing of strong-motion records with human review limited to selected significant or flagged records. This PRISM (Processing and Review

Pedestrian Evacuation Analyst Tool

The Pedestrian Evacuation Analyst is an ArcGIS extension that estimates how long it would take for someone to travel on foot out of a hazardous area that was threatened by a sudden event such as a tsunami, flash flood, or volcanic lahar. It takes into account the elevation changes and the different types of landcover that a person would encounter along the way.
