GEOSPATIAL SOLUTIONS
TO MITIGATE RISK AND
RESPOND TO DISASTERS

 
 

Disaster and Emergency Management

Man-made and natural disasters are occurring more frequently and with greater intensity, straining resources and challenging community resilience. To help combat these catastrophes organizations and governmental agencies can use remotely sensed data to plan for and alleviate risks and hazards and manage the response and recovery efforts when an emergency disaster strikes.
