Description: 

GIS is a great tool to analyze and assess the disaster risk. It can help us to make decision and plan to deal with the severe disaster. Disaster risk information is spatial in nature and Geographic Information System (GIS) play an important role in disaster risk assessment and management. For this, there is a significant need to create awareness among the disaster management professionals regarding the importance of GIS course.   This GIS4DRM-10 course has therefore been designed jointly by the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation of The University of Twente, the Netherlands (ITC) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Researches Operational Satellite Applications Program (UNITAR-UNOSAT), with its main aim to provide an overview of the use of spatial information in Disaster Risk Management. The course not only reveals what spatial data is and how it is collected, but also emphasize on the use of such spatial data during pre- and post-disaster management.
