Satellite-derived data which is relevant for disaster risk reduction and emergency response is available in a large variety of ways and is being offered by many different providers. The UN-SPIDER database on satellite data and products offers links to many datasets of satellite imagery, elevation models, land use and land cover maps as well as near-real time data products for different hazard types.
But how can these datasets be used for specific application cases? How are they combined, and why is the information they provide so vital in the context of particular hazards? And where can the datasets be accessed?
The UN-SPIDER team compiles an overview of interesting and relevant data applications on a monthly basis, including links to access the related data and products.
