Natural Hazard Assessment and Mitigation
Satellite image incorporated with GIS can give managers and emergency officials a wealth of information for assessment and analysis of natural hazards frm small to large regions around the globe.
The spatial resolution of an image determines the ability to view individual features such as buildings and bridges. It also affects the ability to monitor and assess damage conditions, and depends on the nature of the hazard itself.
Satellite image data is widely used for interpretation of landforms, for identifying and characterizing different hazards and their controlling factors, and for change detection and the assessment of a hazard.
Remote sensing techniques greatly aid in the investigations of natural hazards, on both a local and regional scale. Satellite imagery offers an additional tool from which we can extract information about hazard causes and occurrences. Most importantly, the data greatly aids in the prediction of future hazards, which is very important to those who reside in areas
Satellite Imaging Corporation (SIC) provides orthorectified satellite imagery which can be processed for visualization of terrain conditions in 3 Dimensions (3D) or a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) which are generated from a variety of resources.
RUSH tasking orders for satellite image data around the world are accepted by SIC in support of live events, natural disasters, global security, and various other applications in which FAST delivery of image data is critical. In most instances, we can provide image data within 24 hours after the initial data has been acquired and delivered via FTP and DVD media.
