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

Monitoring and Assessing Post-Disaster Tourism Recovery Using Geotagged Social Media Data

Tourism is a economically highly important industry. It is, however, vulnerable to disaster events. Geotagged social media data, as one of the forms of volunteered geographic information (VGI), has been widely explored to support the prevention, preparation, and response phases of disaster management, while little effort has been put on the recovery phase. A recently [...]
