  • 3D disaster management a study on utilization of smart CCTV-based 3D geo-spatial information

    Today, frequently occurring natural disasters not only cause large-scale damage but are also difficult to predict because of the complexity of factors. Therefore, economic damages and casualties caused by natural disasters are gradually increasing. However, disaster-management measures are unable to be adapted rapidly enough to respond to fast-changing disasters. According to rapid responders, one of the most important elements of disaster management is secured prime time. However, the current disaster management system cannot identify the exact disaster area and its surroundings because of the lack of a situation propagation system. Therefore, we need to establish new disaster management measures. The government has made efforts to predict disaster situations and minimize damages; however, this is difficult because of the lack of situational awareness about the disaster area; it cannot support effective decision-making.

  • The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Social Media Big data Analytics for Disaster Management -Initial Results of a Systematic Literature Review

    When any kind of disaster occurs, victims who are directly and indirectly affected by the disaster often post vast amount of data (e.g., images, text, speech, video) using numerous social media platforms. This is because social media has recently become a primary communication channel among people to report either to public or to emergency responders (ERs). ERs, who are from various emergency response organizations (EROs), usually consider to gain awareness of the situation in order to respond to occurred disaster. However, with the occurrence of the disaster, within minutes, the social media platforms are flooded with various kinds of data which become overwhelmed for ERs with big data. Further, in this posted data, there may be majority of the data consist of redundant and irrelevant content. With this, it becomes challenging for ERs to make sense and take decisions of/on the available big data. Despite recent advances in the technology, processing and analyzing of the disaster related social media big data remains a challenging task. Hence, in this paper, we focus on presenting an initial analysis of a systematic literature review on application of artificial intelligence to analyze/process social media big data for efficient disaster management. During a systematic review process 68 publications were identified. Thereafter, we analyzed all the identified papers. From our analysis, we conclude that the most of the reviewed papers are on text and image classification and mostly convolutional neural networks have been employed for the classification.

  • Educating users for disaster management: An exploratory study on using immersive training for disaster management

    Educating users for effective disaster management skills can be a challenge that requires different levels of training support. While the training requirements can be different with respect to the contexts of managing different disaster types there can be generic training requirements that should be incorporated into all types of disaster management training. Another key aspect of disaster management training is to associate new tools and technologies that facilitate disaster management and relief work. Wireless sensor based disaster management is an emerging research area that promotes technology incorporation into different levels of disaster management tasks. In this work we explore the training for disaster management activities with wireless sensor networks. As the training platform we use a novel, yet increasingly popular and learner engaging, immersive environment OpenSim. In an OpenSim installation, a specialised training environment was developed to simulate several disaster scenarios and required wireless sensors. A set of users have successfully used the training environment and provided feedback. The next phase of the research is planned to produce a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to facilitate academics and students for disaster management training.

  • Online Educational Games-Based Learning in Disaster Management Education: Influence on Educational Effectiveness and Student Motivation

    The aim of this study was to measure the learning effectiveness and motivational appeal of an online games for learning Disaster Management Education (DME) concepts, which was designed according to the curricular objectives and the subject matter of the Mepco Schlenk Engineering College (MSEC) curriculum, as compared to a similar application, encompassing equal learning objectives and content but lacking the gaming aspect. The study also investigated prospective gender differences in the game's learning efficacy and motivational appeal. The sample was 124 students, who were arbitrarily apportioned to two groups, one of which used the online gaming application (Group A, N = 62) and the other one the non-user of online gaming one (Group B, N = 62). A Disaster Management Knowledge Test (DMKT) was used as the pre- test and post-test. Students were also perceived during the interventions. Data analyses disclosed that the gaming approach was both more active in stimulating students' knowledge of DME concepts and more motivational than the non-online gaming approach. Despite girls' greater involvement with, liking of and experience in disaster online gaming, and their greater initial disaster management knowledge, the learning gains that boys and girls achieved through the usage of the game did not differ significantly, and the game was found to be more motivational for girls than the boys. The results suggest that within MSEC, online educational disaster management games can be exploited as effective and motivational learning environments, irrespective of students' gender.

  • Correlation analysis of the RADAR precipitation echo and the precipitation area

    Not only the natural and social disaster but also the complex disaster occur more frequently and the size of disaster becomes bigger because of the climate change, the accelerated urbanization and the social structure diversification and complexification. New disaster management strategy is required according to the change of the disaster occurrence pattern. Although, the public agencies and private institutes produce the information related to the various types of disaster and they respond to each disasters by making use of the information. When the disaster occur, each disaster monitoring data, observed data and simulated result data related to the disaster situation from different agencies have been operated separately in the disaster management until now.

  • Disaster management in India — An analysis using COBIT 5 principles

    From a limited focus on post-disaster activities of response and recovery, disaster management frameworks have evolved over time to include pre-disaster activities of prevention and preparedness. Disaster risk governance, disaster risk reduction and resilience are core aspects of contemporary disaster management frameworks. India is one of the most disaster prone areas in the world with challenges aplenty in effective disaster management. Aligning with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, India evolved the National Disaster Management Plan (NDMP) of 2016 as a comprehensive disaster management framework that proposes an integrated approach involving relevant stakeholders for addressing diverse natural and human-induced hazards. The five principles of ISACA's COBIT 5 framework, a widely accepted comprehensive IT governance and management framework for enterprise IT, is used to analyze the NDMP 2016 to identify areas for improvement.

  • Improving Map-Based Post-Disaster Management Systems a Guassian Fusion Approach

    Providing full and accurate information is crucial to the post-disaster management to enable the affected people access and obtain the resources needed, in a timely manner, but, the current map-based post-disaster management system lack of providing the emergency resource lists without filtering them, as a result the post-disaster management system consumes high levels of time and energy in calculation. An effective post-disaster management system (PDMS) has to ensure distribution of emergency resources, such as hospital, storage and transportation in a reasonable time so that affected papulation are properly benefited from it during the post-disaster period. In the method proposed in this paper, first, initial mapping and disaster mapping was proposed under Gaussian transformation and the maps image acquired as histogram. And then, all the maps, which are under discrete wavelet transform (DWT), were converted as DWT images by applying Gaussian fusion algorithm. Second, inverse DWT (iDWT) is applied to generate a new map for post-disaster management system. Finally, simulations were carried out and the results evaluated in terms of the indices, namely entropy, spatial frequency (SF) and image quality index (IQI). The evaluation results show that the proposed method is more effective than the other fusion algorithms, such as mean-mean fusion and max-UD fusion.

  • Role of Internet of Things in disaster management

    Disasters, both man-made and natural, occurs frequently throughout the globe. When these happen, it furnishes some outrageous results. Loss of life, property and habitat are few of the outcomes of the disasters. Efficient management techniques should be implemented for minimizing the damage and risks involved with disasters. Technology growth is not reflecting in the area of emergency management. Internet of Things, rapidly evolving to Internet of Anything and Everything, can be introduced to manage disaster scenarios. Rescue events can be interlinked through IoT for proper management approach. Disaster warning systems, rescue methods, follow-up, and regulation techniques can be conjugated for this purpose. This paper introduces a novel architectural system for productive disaster management using IoT techniques which reduces the fatality of a disaster phenomenon.

Looking for greater financial success it has deployed information technology in its various commercial activities. However its disaster management plan is far from being an efficient one, every time a crisis has occurred that the lack of an efficient mechanism has come to fore. This paper looks at Indian Railways present disaster management plan and proposes different strategies in using information technology for disaster preparedness and response. It proposes the setup of a disaster management network that has both private and public interface.

  • Assuring Image Quality in Spatial Data Sharing Platform for Disaster Management

    This paper aims to describe development of a Web-based spatial data sharing platform for disaster management. Alongside functionality, quality of image(IQ) is basic to successful sharing of distributed geo-services.This paper explores IQ provisioning in the context of geo-service sharing for disaster management.The paper presents an IQ model for disaster management and illustrates how user level IQ requirements can be supported in IQ-aware geo- service architecture. In contrast to context-specific IQ assurance approaches, which usually focus on a few variables determined by local needs, this approach provides interactive, multi-granularity and contextsensitive IQ indicators that help experts to build and justify their opinions. The prototype system was designed and validated by enhancing IQ generated by remote sensing through the technologies of visualization.
