Using Geographic Information Systems for risk and damage assessment

Abstract

img

A primary responsibility of any government is to provide safety and security for its citizens, communities, and assets. This could be achieved by the better use of any available tools and technology that help managing the efforts and suggest solutions at the time of crises.

 

Location based information system is crucial to homeland security. Managers at all levels of government must effectively collect, analyze, and share spatial data. Fire, police, public works, public health, building and safety, water, engineering, utilities , and other disciplines utilize image processing and geographic information system (GIS) software for analysis and planning; this can be extended to managing and reducing the consequences of all forms of public emergencies.

 

The aim of this paper is show to the local governments the benefit of geographic information systems and remote sensing data in managing data and suggest solutions at the time of crises.

The paper focused on making two scenarios in two different cities in Libya :

  • The first scenario was to produce risk map and estimate the damage for the effect of explosion of AL Briyga fuel storage complex which is now became very close to the city of Tripoli.
  • The second scenario was to simulate the flooding in some areas which is located near dry valleys, the results were to map the mostly affected areas and to suggest the best routs for emergency services.
