Gis Application In Disaster Risk Reduction Training
Communication Technologies (ICTs) have improved prospects for solving technical
problems through the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for hazard
mapping and modeling, the use of web-based data sources to facilitate research
on disaster management and the use of searchable databases for hazard
information. Not all Caribbean countries, however, have been able to fully
utilize these opportunities.
This course aims
to impart practical skills on how to use GIS, to overcome the major challenges
faced in all phases of disaster management.
By the end of this course
the participants will be able to:
Describe and utilize spatial data
Understand spatial data in the phases of pre disaster, during
disaster and post disaster.
