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

Missing Maps Mapathon at Makerspace (DAI) - OSM for Malaria Elimination

Many regions of our world are not covered on a map. Maps are however an important tool for planning vaccination campaigns and for ensuring medical supplies. Places that are not covered in a map are in many cases nonexistent for authorities and other organizations. We want to change this situation - with your help- and [...]

Towards using Volunteered Geographic Information to monitor post-disaster recovery in tourist destinations

The aftereffects of disaster events are significant in tourist destinations where they do not only lead to destruction and casualties, but also long-lasting economic harms. The public perception causes tourists to refrain from visiting these areas and recovery of the tourist industry, a major economic sector, to become challenging. To improve this situation, current information [...]

The Tasks of the Crowd: A Typology of Tasks in Geographic Information Crowdsourcing and a Case Study in Humanitarian Mapping

In the past few years, volunteers have produced geographic information of different kinds, using a variety of different crowdsourcing platforms, within a broad range of contexts. However, there is still a lack of clarity about the specific types of tasks that volunteers can perform for deriving geographic information from remotely sensed imagery, and how the [...]
