Inventories and Web Map Service (WMS)

RockDB is a database of rockfall inventories, carried out since 2014 during the RockRisk (BIA2013-42582-P) and Rockmodels (BIA2016-75668-P, AEI / FEDER, EU) research projects. Both projects incorporate fragmentation data as a particularity and have as their main objective to provide more precise tools to predict and prevent fragmentary rockfalls.

These events have been collected in a spatial database, using PostGIS and following the INSPIRE directive for natural hazards. Additional information available about fragmentation, produced in each of them, has been added.

A Web Map Service (WMS) has been developed that allows the information to be consulted at different scales. You can check directly through the web viewer accessible at this link https://rockdb.upc.edu/

The information in this database is being used to calibrate the RockGIS free software (Matas et al. 2017) of rockfall trajectories simulation that incorporates a fragmentation model (Ruiz-Carulla and Corominas, 2019).
