Interdisciplinary GIS applications in Challenging RISK
Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: Patrick Rickles
Challenging RISK is an interdisciplinary project aimed at improving resilience through integration of societal and technical knowledge, part of which uses citizen science techniques to support community engagement in preparedness. We will share our use of GIS to enhance resilience through identification and gathering of information about target communities, analysis of open source data, use of data analysis tools in workshops, and the creation of maps as a means to share community information.
