Satellite Mapping and Information Products


In this GDACS session, a set of standard information products that support the analysis and decision making, both in the preparedness phase and in first disaster phase, is gathered.

In the first phase after major disasters, international actors always require the same information to support the decision making process. In doing so, the mobilization assistance can be adequate. In the first disaster phase, during exercises as well as in real emergencies, the same information (e.g. satellite maps, impact estimations, etc.) is collected by a variety of actors. This might lead to a duplication of efforts and potential information overload.

This session aims to improve the GDACS standard “information product” catalogue that contains products that are always required (or requested) by various disaster managers and other key players. It is based on relevant products produced for different scenarios and disaster phases, such as catalogues from UNOSAT, JRC, MapAction, and others that have been widely used and assessed.
