The Geospatial Project Management Tool (GeoProMT) is a Web-based tool for management of shared geospatial and multi-temporal data such as GIS data and remotely sensed images. Integral to the GeoProMT framework is role-based access control (RBAC), where data access permissions and data users are associated with appropriate roles, enabling efficient collaboration among participants of large interdisciplinary geospatial projects.The mission of all investigators is the development and integration of user-friendly Geographical Information Science and environmental modeling tools using readily available data sets to support a rapid, practical and effective decision-making in integrated environmental and disaster management.

Title and Description
Vhub - How to Use GeoProMT within Vhub
This project shows how to create a successful Titan2D run using VHub. GeoProMT is used to keep record of all the data and files created. Titan2D is a numerical simulator used successfully to model lahars and pyroclastic density currents. It main input parameter, for a successful run, is a Digital Elevation Model (DEM). This DEM is a GRASS raster file and not everyone uses this Geographic Information System (GIS) package to work with GIS data. Therefore, not everyone is aware of how to convert their current DEM to the specific GRASS file format needed to run Titan2D. The converted DEM is of the Santa Ana Volcano in El Salvador.

GeoProMT - How to set up your GeoProMT project
The purpose of this project is to guide interested users to create their own project and start uploading their project design and working on their project. Please give your project a significant title "YEAR YourName YourProjectTitle - YourLocation, YourCountry" (e.g. 2013 Renschler Hazard Assessment - Mt.Etna, Italy). PLEASE NOTE GeoProMT v1.0 is under development. BE AWARE that we invited you to use our server and that we would like you to have the best experience possible to further improve GeoProMT. Our goal is to constantly improve our service to develop a stable and collaborative project environment. Therefore INCLUDE THIS ADDITIONAL PROJECT MANAGER to your list of registered users in your project team by adding them from the drop down menu in "Project Users": firstname.lastname@example.org. Also: DO NOT set your project as "featured" (public access enabled).
For questions send an email to GeoProMT Support.

LESAM - 2008 Geohazard Assessment - Tungurahua, Ecuador
GIS and debris flow modeling were used to evaluate the geological hazards near Banos, Ecuador, nestled in a deep quebrada (ravine) on the flanks of Tungurahua Volcano. Paths and areas of mud flows, pyroclastic flows, lahars and other dangers related to water, volcanic deposits and activity are delineated and mapped. This allows Banos to better understand and recognize high risk areas are located along its road. There are two main roads outfrom Banos that represent possible evacuation routes (Sheridan, 2008). Because Tungurahua Volcano is currently active, one of these routes, located on the volcano's flank, is constantly being closed or damaged due to the dangers mentioned above.
