Global Seismic Data (GSD) was established in New Zealand in 2018. Proponents in the development of affordable cloud service solutions that measure seismic activity of buildings and infrastructure. Resulting data is used to flag vulnerabilities, allowing engineers to assess and strengthen structures – providing economic resilience for building owners. In addition alerts are broadcast during a large event to notify stakeholders of a buildings status – protecting lives and allowing businesses to resume as soon as possible after an event.
GSD’s vision is to see businesses and communities benefit from a system of safety by continuing to grow joint venture partnerships locally and globally with engineering companies, telecommunication companies, and insurers.
“We want to enable building owners, property managers, facilities managers along with government local authorities and engineering companies to prepare, be well equipped with a high quality, sustainable valid risk matrix. We want to see lives saved and rapid recovery during large seismic events.”
GSD has a valuable team of skilled individuals working together to provide excellence in the delivery of affordable seismic monitoring services. We provide ongoing support to our growing network of dedicated partners around the world. The shareholder mix of technology, engineering and natural hazards sector experts provides a valuable resource to lead and build seismic insights that will benefit whole communities.
