Vesuvius Volcanopedia

Discover the volcanic risk and eruption history of Vesuvius, the most famous of all volcanoes. Designed by a volcanologist Vesuvius Volcanopedia shows the current eruption probability of this potentially dangerous volcano and the hazard risk to you based on your location. It also includes regularly-updated descriptions and interactive maps of its major eruptions over 40,000 years, English summaries of the official Italian volcano monitoring bulletins, and a night-time seismometer in case the earth moves while you sleep.

Vesuvius Volcanopedia is designed as an authoritative and comprehensive information resource and volcano monitoring tool for both residents and visitors in the Naples-Amalfi region, especially tourists visiting Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Vesuvius summit crater.

In addition, since December 2018, similar information for Campi Flegrei is also being added.

*Note: The app will ask permission to use your device location. This is required to determine whether you are in a volcanic hazard zone and your proximity to possible volcanic vents. Your location is not stored outside your device for these purposes. However, it is stored for three days on a remote server in order for the experimental seismometer to work, but without any information that could identify you. It is recommended that you grant location permission but if you do not wish to participate in the seismometer experiment you may turn it off in Settings.
