LESSON 3 CHALLENGES

RAPID DAMAGE ASSESSMENT

 
 
  • To rapidly delineate damage severity and extent, and to quickly distribute the products to response and recovery personnel operating in harsh post-disaster environments
    • Rapid change detection methods are needed that enable damage delineation from RS data within a few hours of an event;
    • Rapid change detection methods require automated rectification and mosaicking of imagery enabling ‘correctly’ placed road networks and other critical data layers
    • A method for assimilating field information and rapidly updating image-based ‘damage’ products is needed.
