Integrating remote sensing and GIS for urban fire disaster management

This research is aimed at developing an urban disaster management system, which will improve the existing method of hazard assessment and dynamic resource distribution. The study integrates high spatial resolution remote sensor data with GIS data for developing a methodology to model urban disaster risk, which will assist in providing decision support systems for emergency operations and redistribution of dynamic resources (material and human). Research result demonstrates a unique methodology, that integrates appropriate remote sensor and existing GIS data to semantically model hazard in urban areas. A framework for integrating remote sensing and GIS data is also demonstrated as an alternative to the existing method of distributing dynamic resources. The research results can contribute to an overall improvement in the way urban disasters are managed and will assist multiple users in the decision making process. (a) Thesis submitted in fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in the School of Surveying and Spatial Information Systems.
