Our Raging Planet
How would the flash-floods of South America, the earthquakes of New Zealand, the wildfires of California or volcanic activity of the Pacific Rim affect Northern Ireland? OurRagingPlanet teaches students the need for resilience and the implications of natural disasters through their own services and surroundings. It is a web application, with custom tools and interactive maps that allow students to apply basic simulations to their area in the region, using open data to estimate the impact on familiar local landmarks.
