is a new volcano-oriented Geographic Information System for multidisciplinary volcano analysis.

It offers the possibility to analyze, model and visualise different volcano-related available data in a user-friendly high-resolution visualisation environment.


Someone once asked me: "Why are you developing another Geographic Information System when others softwares are available?"


  1. It is open source;
  2. It lets you analise, model and visualise all in one;
  3. It works in a real 3D environment;
  4. It can make 4D analysis and
  5. It is volcano oriented.


At this stage VolGIS is developed in Processing but I am thinking of something that would work better with both a GPU processing as well as a Web-GIS application. 

The last version is the 2.5, presented at Cities on Volcanoes 10 in Naples, Italy. 

The features already available are:

  1. Grid Subdivision
    1 GridSubdivision

  2. Earthquakes visualisation
    2 Earthquakes

  3. Density analysis
    3 DensityAnalysis

  4. Overlap maps
    4 OverlapMaps

  5. Isosurfaces
    5 Isosurfaces

  6. Crop box for detail analysis
    6 CropBox


 What more?

  • The possibility to add "sub-cubes" to analyse specif volume;
  • 4D analysis.


Last update: 27-10-2018 

Working on:

  • Global extent (basic function automatically extended to all volcanoes);
  • Upload shapefile (*.shp) module. 



The code is not published yet because I am preparing the relative paper. 
This demo version is developed using Mt.Etna as a model.
