A new system for the representation of places hit by disasters

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

This paper analyses a new system for data collection and management after a disaster. In particular, the system enables to represent what exists in a place, and to visualize the preceding state, in a synoptic vision before and after the event; and also enables the consultation of synthetic information, the possibility of connections to internet sites for further in depth analysis and then the possibility of archiving and retrieving data through researching specific items. This is carried out in a simple and quick way, utilizing a portable device. The obtained product is consultable on site, or otherwise memorized and archived. Because of all these functions, it could be a useful instrument to document the situation of the places hit by disasters, and to organise the interventions.
