eC2: GFDRR Challenge Fund Data Exploration Tool

Deadline:  07-Sep-2017 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) logo1

GFDRR is supporting the development of an open data schema for hazard, exposure and vulnerability data through the Challenge Fund( This Consultancy will support the project by developing software that will allow for extracting a subset of hazard, exposure and vulnerability data from external databases using an API, and then subsequently downloading and interactively analyzing the extracted data. The software should allow the user to save and/or print the analysis results. It should permit a variety of means for exploring and understanding the data. The overall goal is to provide a non-expert user with the ability to simply extract, explore and understand hazard, exposure and vulnerability data relevant to a country or region of interest. The desktop versions should be compatible with common operating systems. The software should be based on open-source software such as R or Python. This will need to be delivered by March 2018.
