The GIS Blueprint for Conducting Rapid Damage Assessments

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

GIS professionals are key to streamlining rapid damage assessments. I will demonstrate and show real world examples of the newest geospatial technology for conducting rapid damage assessments. Any local, county, state or federal GIS professional and emergency manager can utilize these tools following a disaster. I will demonstrate off the shelf and open source GIS platforms that can be used to drastically increase response time and decrease recovery times for communities. I will show advantages and disadvantages around using the three imagery collection techniques to conducting PDAs: satellite, aerial, and ground. As well as show cost saving methods for aerial and ground imagery collection, the preferred methods. Lastly, I will present a quick outline on how the use of the TCPED (Tasking, Collection, Processing, Exploitation and Processing) process can help organize and streamline the technology and PDA process.
