World Resources Institute

The World Resources Institute provides open access to reliable data for actionable change. WRI has worked with dozens of partners to build a suite of data platforms that take data from across the Institute and around the world to break down siloes and enable transparent decision making. The WRI data platforms enable users to monitor forests with satellites, track the drivers of climate change, understand indigenous communities land rights, plan for water scarcity, examine the cross-section of global environmental issues and more.

Aplicación de datos del mes: Las precipitaciones

Mediciones de las precipitaciones del ciclón Pam que partió de Vanuatu el 17 de marzo de 2015. Imagen: NASA.

¿Para qué se usan los datos de precipitaciones?

Las inundaciones, los corrimientos de tierra y las sequías son amenazas naturales desencadenadas por el exceso o escasez de precipitaciones. El monitoreo de las precipitaciones es importante para prever esos desastres y posibilitar que las autoridades tomen medidas lo antes posible. De este modo, los datos de precipitaciones (junto con otros datos complementarios) ayudan a prevenir que las amenazas naturales se conviertan en desastres.

Aplicación de datos del mes: Resumen de mapas web para el monitoreo de inundaciones

Desde su inicio en 2014, la base de datos de UN-SPIDER sobre datos y productos satelitales ha recopilado enlaces e información de más de 250 fuentes de datos relacionadas con la reducción del riesgo de desastre y la respuesta de emergencia basada en el espacio. Estos incluyen muchos enlaces gratuitos a datos satelitales, así como productos finales como mapas de riegos.

Monitoring Tropical Storms for Emergency Preparedness

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

Tropical storms have major impacts, including loss of life and destruction of property. In 2017 alone, the United States experienced three tropical storms with more than $1 billion in losses. Open source satellite data can be used before, during, and after a storm for monitoring and response. A storm’s intensity, path, wind, precipitation, storm surge, and flooding can be derived from historical and near real-time satellite observations. In this introductory webinar, participants will learn about the NASA data and tools they can use to monitor tropical storms.

NASA Earth Science Disasters Program

The NASA Disasters Program promotes the use of Earth observations to improve the prediction of, preparation for, response to, and recovery from natural and technological disasters. By sponsoring application science, the Program advances the readiness of results to enable disaster management practices, advance damage reduction, and build resilience. The Program targets a spectrum of disasters, including floods, earthquakes, volcanoes, and landslides as well as combined hazards and cascading impacts.

Flood Map : Water Level Elevation Map (Beta)

Flood Map application is a small contribution using our programming skill towards the fight against natural disaster like flood & probably save a life.

 

  • Flood Map may be useful to some extent for flood risk assessment or in flood management, flood control etc.

  • Flood Map may help to provide flood alert/flood warning if flood water level at certain point is rising.

  • Flood Map can help to locate places at higher levels to escape from floods or in flood rescue/flood relief operation.
