Arizona natural hazards viewer is AGI Map of the Day

The interactive map of natural hazards in Arizona produced by AZGS, was highlighted by the American Geosciences Institute as the Map of the Day on the AGI Critical Issues website. 

AZGS interactive map of natural hazards includes:
  • Earthquakes since 1852
  • Active faults and earth fissures
  • Flood potential
  • Fire risk index
The map is searchable by street address so that hazard information can be quickly and easily found for specific locations. Links are available for further information and mitigation tips, and all of the data can be downloaded for further use and analysis.

We are developing a statewide inventory of landslides, with over 4,500 compiled so far, which will be added as another layer to the map soon.

AGI says the Critical Issues Program provides a portal to decision-relevant, impartial, expert information from across the geosciences. The website aggregates material from a wide array of geoscience information providers in one place.
