Disaster Monitoring and Mitigation

Natural disatsers are are a major risk to a country’s sustainable development. The vulberability to disasters can be minimized with accurate forecasts, early warnings and damage assessments. Remote sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS) have been assumed to be supportive tools in all the phases of disaster i.e., prevention, preparedness, early warning and reponse and rehabilitation. Important areas of application are;

  • Monitor, forecast and map various hazards
  • Damage assessment in affected areas
  • Integrated Flood Analysis System
  • Disaster vulnerability assessment (earthquake, landslide, flood, cyclone, tsunami)
  • Risk modeling
  • Rehabilitation and mitigation support
