Visualize, monitor, and alert on critical seismic events in Contrail

New Earthquake Data Services in Contrail coupled with hydrologic and meteorologic data provides users with a complete view of environmental risks such as flooding and seismic hazards in one place.

The effects of seismic activity on critical infrastructure such as dams, levees, bridges, water and waste water utilities, can cause physical and functional damage, increase the risk of failure, or reduce operational performance. With increasing population growth in earthquake-prone regions as well as the vulnerability of older infrastructure, risk management best practices requires operators to promptly conduct post-event inspections and evaluation of vulnerable sites and structures.

Automate Inspection Alerts
The new fully integrated Earthquake Data Services add-on in Contrail provides users with a complete operational picture of the risks to help make informed decisions. Operators have the ability to respond promptly. Users can target specific sites of interest and create custom alerts and notifications to fit their operational needs.


  • Targeted points of interest with custom Magnitude/Distance lookup table filtering
  • 24×7 monitoring with custom alarms, and notifications via sms, text, and email
  • Earthquake calculations and visualization with custom dashboards, tables, charts, and map layers
  • Documentation and archive of critical seismic events
  • Integration with EAPs (Emergency Action Plans) and other environmental data

Example of a Dam Safety Program where seismic activity is monitored. Automated alerts for “Inspection Required” can be based upon specific Magnitude/Distance.

Contrail is the leading enterprise-level software platform that collects, processes and delivers real-time environmental sensor data from local hydro-meteorological networks and other external sources for Web-based dissemination, visualization, monitoring and automated alerting. The software provides critical information to help users understand and manage their environmental monitoring-related missions—from flood and road weather safety, to dams, stormwater, wastewater and water resource management—and is key to effective situational awareness and timely decision-making.
