This Special Issue will present the potential of geospatial technologies in mitigating disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis, floods and landslides, which will be common occurrences in the future. The reduction of vulnerability through the adaptation of new and modern tools of GI technologies, e.g., through urban planning and construction, based on risk and vulnerability maps, as well as the quality and coordination of disaster mapping activities to support response measures are examples of topics with expected scientific results. The Special Issue will show how to coordinate efforts globally, as nowadays most disasters cross borders. Authors should present works in which geoinformation technologies are shown to help in all facets of disaster management.
Papers based on presentations from the upcoming GI4DM conference in September, 2019, will demonstrate the latest international advances in geoinformation for disaster management.
NOTE: This Special Issue is organized in conjunction with the upcoming GI4DM conference 2019 (http://www.gi4dm2019.org/), which will be held from 3-6 September 2019 in Prague, Czech Republic. It is open just for papers from GI4DM conference 2019.
