RAPIDMAP

Project researchers

RAPIDMAP (RAPID MAPping) deals with Remote Sensing (RS) and GIS, two powerful technologies for collecting and managing useful information of natiutal hazards, disasters and damages. However, as many different types of RS data are available, imagery co-registration, information integration and extraction need reliable and advanced methodologies. The RAPIDMAP project developed practical ways to process and integrate RS data and allow users to use those data soon after disasters by means of WebGIS tools. This is a need not only for decision makers but also for end-users in the disaster area. By means of WebGIS technologies, a Decision Support System (DSS)  allows to easily access all the information on PCs, portable laptops and tablet terminals in very short time after data collection and processing.
