Emergency & Disaster Management
GEO-PICTURES save lives and mitigate disaster effects on environment. In emergency situations striking humanity, environment and the civil public, it is of paramount importance to communicate from the field what has happened and where as quickly and accurately as possible so that appropriate actions can be taken.
One cannot rely on an existing infrastructure except satellite communications for global coverage.
GEO-PICTURES provides near-real-time input of pictures, video, sensors and assessment results worldwide. SatNav provides position-tagging, and field data is integrated with EO in a seamless solution hosted by United Nations on the CERN campus in Geneva.
The tools developed, including the all-in-one disaster assessment tool running on Android, greatly helps field teams such as UNDAC to provide better and quicker damage assessment.
