An overall methodology for rapid estimation of damage from natural disasters and support for decision making on response and recovery measures.
Project EN 1011
TELEMATICS APPLICATION Programme (1994-1998)
The objective of the RADATT project is the design of an overall methodology for the rapid estimation of damage from natural disasters, and support for decisions on response and recovery when they occur.
It involves integrating several components within a single user interface environment comprising remote sensing and earth-science database information, GIS technology, analytical modeling and image processing techniques.
The integration of near real-time satellite imaging data with existing databases and natural hazard models can provide rapid and reliable estimates of damage. The produced results can be made immediately available via comunication networks such as the Internet. The effort is concentrated on analyzing user requirements and defining the functional specification for a software system architecture to achieve the above goals.
· Rapid identification of the damage sources
· Optimal response to emergency
· Reduced reaction time from days to hours after a disaster
· More efficient organization of assistance and rehabilitation
· Increased reliability of damage and loss estimates
· Information from diverse data sources in common format standards across the EU
· System directly available for use in seismic hazard applications in Greece, Portugal and Italy
· Subsequently exportable to other European countries
