Couverture de l’ouvrage WebGIS for Disaster Management and Emergency Response

This book aims to help students, researchers and policy makers understand the latest research and development trends in the application of WebGIS for Disaster Management and Emergency Response. It is designed as a useful tool to better assess the mechanisms for planning, response and mitigation of the impact of disaster scenarios at the local, regional or national levels. It contains details on how to use WebGIS to solve real-world problems associated with Disaster Management Scenarios for the long-term sustainability. The book broadens the reader understanding of the policy and decision-making issues related to Disaster Management response and planning.

Introduction.- Basic Concepts of WebGIS.- Disaster Management Concepts.- Evolution of the Applications of GIS Technology for Disaster Management.- Earthquakes Applications.- Flood Modeling and Prediction Applications.- Infrastructure Modeling Applications.- Urban Emergency Management Scenarios.- Pandemics and Health Monitoring Applications.- Decision-making Constraints using WebGIS for Disaster Management and Emergency Response.- Application Challenges for WebGIS in Disaster Management and Emergency Response.
Dr. Rifaat Abdalla is Associate Professor of Geospatial Science with King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah (Saudi Arabia). During the past ten years, he served as Defence Scientist with Defence Research and Development Canada; the Federal Government of Canada research arm in Defense and Security research. In addition he was Adjunct Professor with the graduate program in Disaster and Emergency Management, York University, Toronto, he also served as a contract faculty with the Geomatics Program, Ryerson University, Toronto (Canada).
