Frequently Asked Questions

Erosion is a process that wears away at the earth’s surface. It can be caused by wind, water, ice, or gravity. An erosion map shows where this process is happening the most. This can be helpful for understanding and planning for land development, natural disasters, and more.

Once you have your data to put together your erosion map you can use the design tools inside Equator to create a custom erosion map. Click here to make one now.

Erosion maps can vary in accuracy. The data within Equator can have a vertical accuracy of up to 10cm.

Erosion maps are created by scientists to help protect areas from future or potential erosion. By studying the patterns of past erosion, scientists can make models that predict where and how much erosion might occur in a certain area. These maps can help decision makers create policies that will protect vulnerable areas from being damaged by erosion.
