Reinforce the value of GIS in designs and delivers advanced GIS solutions for complex and large-scale infrastructure projects, as well as remote sensing for disaster resilience and planning, including rapid mapping of damage extent after a disaster, reviewing remote sensing in emergency mapping applications supporting the crisis response phase (natural disasters as well as humanitarian crisis), and most recently, lesson learned on leveraging digital mapping technique as a decision support tool to find the best possible search and rescue route out of Thailand’s flooded Tham Luang Cave

Modern digital mapping tools have been essential for locating resources and making decisions in a number of crises, from leveraging spatio-temporal and hazard mapping of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti to the refugee influx in Rwanda, as well as to dispatch aid to areas in greatest need during Nepal’s earthquake disaster on 25 April 2015. Most recently, on 10 July 2018, all the 12 boys and their soccer coach were finally brought out of Tham Luang Cave’s narrow and submerged passageways, by leveraging the use of GIS and digital mapping technology to generate a perspective to find the best possible search and rescue route. As such, this conference will review remote sensing role in emergency mapping for disaster response and using GIS to visualize risks and hazards, including discussion on innovation in digital mapping in assessing damage extend after a disaster. All this is geared to create greater awareness that warrant all industries and government agencies to take a closer look at the salient feature provided by remote sensing and GIS technology to generate a perspective towards efficient and effective disaster management’s preparedness and response, including delivering solutions for complex and large-scale infrastructure projects.
