Natural disasters are becoming more frequent and intense across the globe. Enhancing resilience to increasing hazards, exposure, and vulnerability therefore requires leveraging of advanced geospatial technologies for better disaster mitigation and management. With continuous improvements in satellite data sensor acquisition parameters together with geo-computational approaches, geospatial technologies have emerged as the most powerful technology for all phases of disaster management. The course on advanced geospatial technologies for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) is scheduled from April 18 - 29, 2022 .

Course Content

  • Overview of remote sensing & Geographic Information System
  • Application of satellite communication technology for disaster mitigation
  • Overview of UAV for disaster monitoring and mitigation
  • Emerging geo computation, online GIS & Geo-web services for DRR
  • Advanced application of Geospatial Technologies for Geological Hazards, Hydrological Hazards, Forest Fire Hazards, Drought Hazards, Coastal Hazards, Atmospheric & Pollution Hazards
