Short summary
In this paper, we propose an experimental system called "READY: Risk, Extreme Events, Adaptation, Defend Yourself". It enables us to provide support to the general public and other safety stakeholders (for example, voluntary associations and civil protection organizations) in the prevention, mitigation and preparedness phase of a flood or landslide risk event. READY offers tremendous value owing to its ability to integrate information coming from several sources, all into one visual framework.
