The Government of Puerto Rico's Portal Datos Geograficos Gubernamentales (governmental geographic data portal) provides a range of information on natural hazards and resources in Puerto Rico, which can be viewed in a GIS program. The interactive map includes:

  • Lakes, rivers, and streams
  • Landslide susceptibility
  • Tsunami inundation zones
  • Flood risk
  • Potential agricultural lands

Additional layers include administrative boundaries and buildings & structures, allowing users to see how different features impact specific regions, homes, and infrastructure.

Note: As of October 2016, this interactive map is no longer available in a web application. However, you can still view the interactive map and download the data using a GIS program - there are both free and commercial programs available online.
