Disaster Mapping und Katastrophenmanagement

Unterstützung humanitärer Aktivitäten durch Entwicklung von Technologien für das Disaster Mapping und Katatrophenmanagement

Nutzergenerierte Geodaten, beispielsweise von OpenStreetMap oder Social Media Plattformen, aber auch Geoinformationen, die von der Verwaltung bereit gestellt werden, sind von wachsender Bedeutung im Katastrophenmanagement. Das Zusammenführen verschiedener Datensätze ermöglicht es humanitären Hilfsorganisationen und Ersthelfern bereits kurz nach dem Eintreten eines Katastrophenereignisses ein Bewusstsein für die Situation vor Ort zu erlangen. Diese Informationen haben darüberhinaus einen großen Wert in der Vorsorge zur Einschätzung von Risiken und Eindämmung von potentiellen Auswirkungen. Um dieses Potential unterschiedlicher Datenquellen besser nutzen zu können, bedarf es innovativer neuer Analysemethoden. Wir entwickeln in Zusammenarbeit mit Nutzern und Hilfskräften hierfür innovative Verfahren und Dienste.

Unsere Leistungen

  • Entwicklung und Bereitstellung von Disaster-Maps für das Katastrophenmanagement sowie für humanitäre Einsätze
  • Entwicklung von Werkzeugen für das Monitoring und die Bewertung von freiwilligen zur Verfügung gestellten Daten (OpenStreetMap, Social Media etc.)
  • Bereitstellen von Anwendungen, die den Einsatz von Geoinformationen im Katastrophenmanagement fördern und vereinfachen
  • Verbesserung der Zusammenarbeit zwischen Freiwilligen und professionellen humanitären Organisationen durch Entwicklung innovativer Werkzeuge

Coupling maximum entropy modeling with geotagged social media data to determine the geographic distribution of tourists

Modeling the geographic distribution of tourists at a tourist destination is crucial when it comes to enhancing the destination’s resilience to disasters and crises, as it enables the efficient allocation of limited resources to precise geographic locations. Seldom have existing studies explored the geographic distribution of tourists through understanding the mechanisms behind it. A recently [...]

Towards Using the Potential of OpenStreetMap History for Disaster Activation Monitoring

Over the last years, the growing OpenStreetMap (OSM) database repeatedly proved its potential for various use cases, including disaster management. Disaster mapping activations show increasing contributions, but oftentimes raise questions related to the quality of the provided Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI). In order to better monitor and understand OSM mapping and data quality, HeiGIT developed a [...]

Workshop with Wikimedia on Disaster Management: Connecting Humanitarian Actors, Research and Digital Volunteer Communities

Over the last couple of years a new group of actors has become increasingly important to support disaster management - digital volunteers. They support disaster responses and humanitarian activities from all over the world. Crowdsourced Wikipedia articles are oftentimes the first source of information people read to learn more about a disaster. Likewise, the OpenStreetMap [...]

Openrouteservice for Disaster Management: Supporting Humanitarian Logistics with Hourly Updates

The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) provides immediate support for disaster or humanitarian responses by coordinating and activating a global network of mappers that contribute up-to-date geodata to the OSM database. For example, after the Nepal earthquake 2015 volunteers added up to 800 km to the OSM street network per hour! This information could successfully support [...]

New Real-time OSM service provides custom up-to-date Extracts of OpenStreetMap Data

Disaster events damage human infrastructure and its surroundings within seconds. To support humanitarian logistics, the Disaster OpenRouteService needs the latest, most accurate data available. While crowd-sourcing OSM updates during disasters proved very successful, there is not yet a convenient way of automatically accessing up-to-date OSM data for specific regions of interest. Addressing this need, HeiGIT [...]

Deep Learning with Satellite Images and Volunteered Geographic Information

Recently, deep learning has been widely applied in pattern recognition with satellite images. Deep learning techniques like Convolutional Neural Network and Deep Belief Network have shown outstanding performance in detecting ground objects like buildings and roads, and the learnt deep features are further applied in some prediction tasks like poverty and population mapping. On the [...]
