How to Contribute

EERI members and other earthquake risk reduction professionals can contribute to reconnaissance efforts for this earthquake in the following ways:

1. Contribute Photos and Notes

There are several ways that you can contribute to our data collection effort.  (A) Contribute post-earthquake field observations and photos or (B) contribute relevant pre-event images of the impacted area to provide baseline data for locations that field teams should visit to observe impacts. Once reconnaissance teams and others begin to share their photos and observations, they will also be shown on the virtual clearinghouse  Data Map and Photo Gallery pages.  All submissions will help inform both reconnaissance and recovery efforts.  

Here is a video on how to use our batch uploader tool here.

2. Inform EERI of your reconnaissance plans

If you will be participating as a part of a reconnaissance mission, recovery mission, or traveling to the impacted area for any other purpose, please contact EERI (eeri@eeri.org) to inform us of your timeline and travel details.  EERI can help link you to others in the field, support you in efforts to share photos or observations, and connect you with  the EERI team (if one is mobilized).
