Welcome to ShakeCast!

ShakeCast®, short for ShakeMap Broadcast, is a fully automated, freely-available open-source system for delivering specific ShakeMap products to critical users and for triggering established post-earthquake response protocols.

ShakeCast allows utilities, transportation agencies, and other large organizations to automatically determine the shaking value at their facilities, set thresholds for notification of damage states (typically green, yellow, and red) for each facility and then automatically notify (via pager, cell phone, or email) specified operators, inspectors, and others within their organizations responsible for those particular facilities in order to prioritize inspection and response.

Browse the links on right for access to the Document Database as well as support pages, built to help keep your copy of ShakeCast running smoothly and successfully.
