Researches GIS APPLICATION IN DISASTER MANAGEMENT

GIS APPLICATION IN DISASTER MANAGEMENT



Introduction:

GIS is the most complete information system for analyzing, modeling, and displaying community vulnerability. When hazard locations can be viewed along with critical infrastructure, critical values at highest risk become apparent. Models can be processed to determine potential impacts and appropriate mitigation requirements. When events occur, response preparedness is more comprehensive. The basic foundation of developing an emergency management program is the analysis of risks and hazards to determine values at risk and operations necessary to reduce exposure, respond effectively, and recover quickly.
