This brochure introduces PanGeo, an online service that provides users with open access to geohazard information across European cities and towns down to a mapping scale of 1:10,000. It provides free online geohazard information for 52 of the largest towns in Europe, mapping geohazards that could potentially affect up to 13% of the EU population. It is intended to improve decision making and reduce risk, considering that geohazards are natural and man-made phenomena that make the ground unstable and in a built environment can be both costly and dangerous.
PanGeo is a 3-year Collaborative Project of the European Commission that started 1st February 2011.
