Earth Observation and Geospatial Artificial Intelligence for Disaster Risk Management

Workshop Overview

This joint workshop aims to explore earth observations and integrate Geospatial Artificial Intelligence (GeoAI) theories, methods and applications for effective disaster management, emphasizing the utilization of GeoAI dealing with drone and satellite images, as well as LiDAR point clouds. The combined scope classified in three categories.

(1) General theories

(2) technical methods

(3) Practical applications

Workshop Theme

  • General theories
    • Introduction to GeoAI for Disaster Management
    • Disaster-resilient infrastructure and city planning
    • Disasters and early warning in a changing climate
    • Communication of Disaster Information through GeoAI
  • Techincal methods
    • Disaster Risk assessment and estimation leveraging GeoAI and Python
    • Hazard, risk, and vulnerability assessment: Geospatial Infrastructure Management Ecosystem (GeoIME)
    • Geospatial technology for inclusive disaster risk management
    • Geospatial technology for capacity building in disaster risk reduction
  • Practical applicaions
    • Machine Learning applications for disaster risk reduction- enabled disaster early warning
    • On-demand high-resolution imaging and geospatial services for disaster management
    • Mobile applications and crowd sourcing for disaster preparedness and response.
    • Case studies and best practices in disaster risk reduction and disaster management.
    • 2D/3D/VR/AR Visualizasion application of disaster management through GeoAI

This combined scope provides a comprehensive framework for participants from diverse backgrounds to engage in discussions, share knowledge, and collaborate on innovative solutions in the field of GeoAI and disaster management. The workshops aim to foster a holistic approach to addressing challenges and enhancing resilience through the integration of cutting-edge technologies and methodologies.
