|ABOUT THE COURSE||
In the Indian sub-continent nearly a billion people suffer yearly from natural and man-made disasters. Rapid population growth, unprecedented development, combined with climatic variations and a complex geoenvironmental setting contribute to the increasing effect of disasters. In recent times India has witnessed large scale disasters such as frequent floods in the Indo-Gangetic and Brahmaputra plains, cyclones on the east and west coast, earthquakes of Bhuj, Kashmir, Sikkim, severe flooding in many cities of India such as Mumbai, Chennai etc., small scale hazards such as landslides in the Himalayan range, forest fire, soil erosion and desertification. Disasters cause wide-spread human, material and environmental losses that exceed the capability of communities to cope up without external relief. Although the natural disasters cannot be prevented fully, their impact can be minimized with sound disaster management strategy aided by latest technological developments.
The role of Geoinformatics in Disaster Management can be summarized as below:
Secondly many types of disasters have precursors, which can be detected at an early stage by orbiting satellites, and can be used for the prediction of both rapid and slow disasters.
When a disaster occurs, the aerospace media provides quickest mode of information collection and can be utilized for monitoring during the event.
