GIScience for Risk Management in Big Data Era
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2021.
According to the updated “2009 UNISDR Terminology”(Terminology of UNISDR, 2016) and modified Terminology of UN DRR (2019), disaster risk management (DRM) is the application of disaster risk reduction policies and strategies to prevent new disaster risk, reduce existing disaster risk, and manage residual risk, contributing to the strengthening of resilience and reduction of disaster losses. Disaster risk reduction (DRR) is aimed at preventing new while reducing existing disaster risk and managing residual risk, all of which contribute to strengthening resilience and, therefore, to the achievement of sustainable development. In other words, DRR is the policy objective of disaster risk management, and its goals and objectives are defined in disaster risk reduction strategies and plans.
New concepts and strategies are being developed and also improved by changing the scientific and data frameworks in which new approaches are applied. We are now living in the big data era, with efforts toward creating smart solutions and developing data-driven geography and new approaches in various disciplines, like cyberspace questions. Taken together, these have led to the creation of new knowledge and a technological situation with new[…] Read more…
