Global Changes and Natural Disaster Management: Geo-information Technologies
 
الاستاذ: د. سالم بن محمد الحتروشي

الوصف الكامل
During the last few decades, we have seen disasters not only stem from natural and
technological sources but human activities have affected societies with increasing
frequency and global change as well. This resulted in enormous socioeconomic
losses and damaged the lives in both developing and developed countries.
State-of-the-art technologies have implemented designing various tools and
applications for saving the earth with informed solutions. Geo-informatics technologies
and earth observation satellites have already demonstrated a strong flexibility
in providing data, analyzing data, and modeling for a broad range of
applications. The Geo-informatics for Natural Disaster Management (GiT4NDM)
and Earth Observation Global Changes (EOGC) events have been struggling in
establishing a platform for scientists, researchers, practitioners, etc. The goal was to
make a sustainable development by organizing events around the world. This began
from 2007, and it is still ongoing (www.widm.ca). Thus, the GiT4NDM events
known for their “Informed Solution and Diversity” concern not only earth observation
systems but also hazards and disasters. The concerns are in global environmental
water issues, climate changes, hazards, disaster management, geospatial
analysis and modeling, digital image processing, mapping, and management of
natural resources, which have also been complex tasks.
State-of-the-art technologies’ sectors can represent a significant portion of the
socioeconomy of every industrialized nation in the world. Thus, this indicated how
technologies are important for every country. However, technology has also
become ubiquitous in modern society and nowadays we talk about “High
Technology.” Many technologies have been showing tremendous promise since the
beginning of the twenty-first century. These include earth observation systems, laser
scanning systems, Internet advancements, computer devices, and software
advancements related to hazards, disaster management, energy, and the environment.
The GiT4NDM motivates researchers to explore and find the intersection
of these technologies that may indeed enable the most promising opportunities.
In this context, the editors of this volume had a long-time paper selection process
extracted from 169 papers submitted to the 7th GiT4NDM-5th EOGC 2015
(December 8–10, 2015, UAE University, UAE). After the peer-reviewing process

by the editors and assistant editors, the authors of a total of 51 full papers were
invited to submit the revised version of the manuscripts. However, in total 16
revised version manuscripts were again evaluated for publication in the current
volume.
