The International Charter: Space and Major Disasters has been triggered to provide satellite-based emergency maps in response to a powerful 8.3 magnitude earthquake in Chile and also caused a tsunami, which affected some parts of the coast. The mechanism was activated on 17 September 2015, at 09:37:02 (UTC+03:00) by ONEMI.
The Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) is working on the creation of 3D Geographic Information System (GIS) maps to ease the evacuation of people from vulnerable areas at risk of tsunami or other natural
It is well known: no single country can develop a basin-wide tsunami warning system. Therefore, the United Nations plays a major role in coordinating regional tsunami warning systems, and in ensuring that national capacities are strengthened to prepare for and cope with tsunamis.

The Tenth U.S. National Conference on Earthquake Engineering, on the 50th Anniversary of the Great Alaska Earthquake and Tsunami, will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share the latest knowledge and techniques to mitigate the damaging effects of earthquakes and tsunamis. This conference is being planned by the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) in collaboration with the George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES).
The International Charter: Space and Major Disasters was activated on 02 April 2014 to provide satellite image products in support of the response efforts for the tsunami event on the northern coast of Chile.
