Remote Sensing for Humanitarian Programs

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
Undefined

This course is the first professional training course with the aim of providing humanitarian professionals basic skills and knowledge required to use remote sensing technologies, such as satellite and drone imagery, as part of humanitarian operations. The goal of the course is to equip participants with the necessary expertise to manage, design, and utilize remote sensing programs during both natural disasters and conflict-related emergencies.

A study conducted by engineers from Tohoku University in Japan sees promising opportunities for LiDAR applications in the context of informing responders after earthquakes. The team investigated the use of LiDAR for earthquake damage assessments following two earthquakes which hit the Island of Kyushu within in 28 hours in April 2016.

A new information system for disaster management in the Andean region supports risk analysis

The RIESGOS project (Spanish for “risks”) is an initiative from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and other project partners to develop a multi-risk information system. The purpose of this project is to improve the information base for natural disaster management and develop strategies to avoid or mitigate risks. This will improve the understanding of risks and predict interdependencies during major emergencies. A prototype of the system is being developed for the Andean region in Chile, Ecuador and Peru.
