Abstract | Full Text

Despite availability of various image sources for specific areas, a new disaster management system is likely to be implemented by using only one of them. Thus, its applicability and extensibility are severely limited. In addition, real-time update for the disaster area is one of the crucial functions for search and rescue activities. To meet the aforementioned requirements, in this paper, we propose a new spatial data infrastructure by defining the methodological scheme for the raster information. The proposed system has four respective layers to reduce the management cost as well as provide a flexible architecture. In each layer, various open source software or standard technologies are employed to perform the given tasks. The experimental results reveal that the proposed scheme accommodates the requirements for disaster risk management and meets the performance requirements in an efficient way.
