Abstract: The aim of this document is to report the methodology used to create the Historic Events module and the use that can be done of damage and loss data. The RDH Historical Event Catalogue consists in a collection of past events data occurred in EU created from a wide array of data published in several sources and datasets. This collection makes use of inventoried data; precisely different open access datasets have been interrogated collecting European-related records on past disastrous events. Both hazard and loss data have been systematically collected from various sources, checked, linked and homogenized to be provided in tabular and geospatial format in order to create the RDH Historical Event Catalogue. The work carried out consists in an effort done to improve the existing lack of homogeneous and comparable data on past events occurred across European Countries. This work represents an assemblage of sources that become complementary. Considering that each source focuses on different aspects of the impact events, the objective of the collection is to describe the phenomenon, gather data on loss and damage records and present the spatial extent of the damages. Finally, analyses intended to illustrate ways of examining global loss data and identifying possible trends in terms of peril or geographical prone areas within the European Countries are performed on the collected damage and loss data.
