Geo-information technology can be of considerable use in disaster management, but with considerable challenge in integrating systems, interoperability and reliability. This book provides a broad overview of geo-information technology, software, systems needed, currently used and to be developed for disaster management. The text invites discussion on systems and requirements for use of geo-information under time and stress constraints and unfamiliar situations, environments and circumstances.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This book provides a welcome addition to the literature on geo-information for disaster management. ... previous literature on this topic has been scattered ... . It is therefore exceedingly useful to have a consolidated range of papers in one publication. ... students, researchers, developers and users of geo-information in the disaster-management field will find this book an excellent resource. It clearly demonstrates how varied this field is ... . the book covers a large range of both natural and man-made disaster-management issues." (Catherine Lowe, Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design, Vol. 33, 2006)
