GEOG 858
Spatial Data Science for Emergency Management

Summary and Final Tasks



This week, you have been introduced to the range of potential hazards that spatial data science for emergency management must be prepared to handle. In your reading assignment, we began to explore some of the key issues associated with supporting emergency management tasks with geospatial tools. Knowing how to design an effective geospatial system for emergency management depends on understanding hazards as much as it depends on understanding the capabilities and limitations of current geospatial technology.

Now that you have a general understanding of the types of hazards relevant to spatial data science for emergency management, we will begin examining the first of the four stages of emergency management in greater detail. In the next lesson, we will explore the role of geospatial perspectives and technologies for Preparedness activities.

Reminder - Complete all of the Lesson 2 tasks!
