This is the official Android version of the University of the Philippines Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards (UP NOAH) website (http://noah.up.edu.ph). The companion app to ARKO (the mobile app for flood, storm surge, and landslide hazard maps), the NOAH Android app features a user-friendly interface that allows you to view near real time weather information, which can help prevent and mitigate disasters.

This mobile app was developed by Rolly Rulete in cooperation with UP NOAH, with the partnership of Smart Communications, Inc. through the Smart Developer Network (SMART DevNet). Content and data come from the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and its participating agencies.

UP NOAH’s mission is to undertake disaster science research and development, advance the use of cutting edge technologies and recommend innovative information services in government's disaster prevention and mitigation efforts. Though the use of science and technology and in partnership with the academe and other stakeholders, the DOST through Program NOAH is taking a multi-disciplinary approach in developing systems, tools, and other technologies that could be operationalized by government to help prevent and mitigate disasters.
