Earthquakes API

Access earthquakes and many more events using PredictHQ’s API

Earthquakes & Much More, All in One Place

Multiple data streams in just one API

If a major earthquake was to impact your business, the last thing you’re likely to want to think about is work - and understandably. But while natural disasters can significantly affect communities, homes and families, they also have the power to shut down a business - even if you’re miles away from the epicenter.

PredictHQ helps your business stay abreast of earthquakes and other major events happening all over the world, thanks to our highly intelligent API. We aggregate, cleanse, enrich, rank and maintain thousands of unique pieces of global scheduled and unscheduled event data into one handy API, giving you the power to make important business decisions quickly. We don’t just tell you what events are happening where and when, though. We help you figure out which ones are most likely to impact your business, and which ones need to be actioned immediately. Store your own copy of events, so you can use them for data modeling and analysis, or enriching your own dataset to produce and sell derivative works.

You can use historical earthquake data to understand how earthquakes impact your demand and set up custom event notifications to alert you when an earthquake has just happened. For operations teams who may manage multiple areas, states or at the national level, immediate notifications about unscheduled events such as earthquakes can provide you necessary insight to make quick decisions to funnel down to local teams. With PredictHQ Notifications, set up real time event alerts that will keep you updated on earthquakes. Now you can make quicker decisions around inventory levels, supply chain decisions, and staffing schedules as quickly as possible.

Ranked Earthquakes

Not sure what events matter most? Don’t worry - we’ve sorted them for you

We’ve all seen the damage a high-magnitude earthquake can do to a city. But have you considered the impact an earthquake could have on your business, even if you’re nowhere near the epicenter? Use PredictHQ’s RESTful API to discover major events including natural disasters happening right around the globe, then use this event intelligence to help you make important business decisions, like when to reduce the price of flights and accommodation, when to pause certain marketing campaigns, or when to turn them off altogether.

PredictHQ gives the average business owner unlimited access to highly intelligent event data with you barely having to lift a finger, giving you more time to focus on creating your own applications, data models and algorithms. Our ranking algorithm assigns a numerical rank to every single event, so you can filter from major to minor events and see at a glance what natural disasters your business needs to pay special attention to. Our API communicates with any platform, and our intelligent weighted algorithm associates event attributes and variables to every piece of information we store to help figure out how important they are.

Making Flat Event Data Intelligent

Because earthquakes need to be handled carefully

There aren’t many events more frightening than an earthquake, but PredictHQ makes it easier to manage the aftermath. We pull multiple data streams and third party APIs across more than 18 categories (and counting) into one smart information source so all the events that could impact your business are found in one handy place. We source the information so you can focus on building integrations, data models, algorithms and forecasting tools. Lookup events and get JSON responses. Integrate our data with any platform - and to make integrations even easier PredictHQ currently has Python and JavaScript SDKs available. We use the OAuth 2.0 standard for authentication, and access tokens are required to grant application access to the tools available on the API. Developers won’t need to spend precious time capturing, cleaning and maintaining disparate data sources. Plus, our API is versioned for easier maintenance. You can even search for events near a specific location using airport IATA codes, search within a geographical radius, or query multiple locations and categories at the same time, so even if an earthquake happens a million miles away from your HQ, you’ll find out virtually instantly how it could impact your business and what action needs to be taken.

You can’t prepare for what you don’t see coming
