Emerging Technologies for Disaster Response

Feb 12 2024

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM MT

Exhibit Hall Theater

Disasters and emergency situations require time-critical responses, and often put rescue workers into dangerous areas themselves while trying to assess an ongoing situation, or to plan where best to deploy resources. Many geospatial technologies have started to be employed for use in rapidly-developing situations – everything from on-demand satellite imagery to drones and even autonomous robots. Hear real-world case studies that feature emerging technologies being deployed to save lives, optimize resources, and enhance disaster response.

Rapid Delivery of Disaster Response Data by the Alabama Department of Transportation
The Alabama DOT has a very robust network of computers available to its geospatial team. The UAS group is charged with acquiring imagery and processing the data into standard mapping deliverables, which are then used to create project-specific deliverables in various formats for the design group and others within ALDOT.

This presentation will cover one such project. Using their in-house data processing machines, ALDOT was able to rapidly respond to collect and process drone imagery for hurricane damage assessment. The entire dataset was processed securely on-site, using distributed processing capabilities to further speed up processing times. The overall value of being able to process very large datasets, in-house and in a timely manner, ensure base data for design projects continue to flow to the stakeholders without delay.

Facilitating Efficient Natural Disaster Response Efforts with Clear SKAI App
From forecasting to emergency response, preparing for severe weather is critical for ensuring the safety of employees and customers, protecting physical assets, maintaining business continuity, and managing brand reputation. Learn how enterprises can leverage geospatial and satellite imagery of physical infrastructure for fast, accurate hurricane and severe weather preparedness and recovery measures including damaged building detection for post-hurricane assessments using Google SKAI and Planet data.

This session will provide insights into how geospatial advancements deliver detailed and accurate information about the extent of damage, assist in resource allocation, assess infrastructure, provide flood mapping, and even provide predictive modeling.
