ARSET - Transforming Earth Observation (EO) Data into Building Infrastructure Data Sets for Disaster Risk Modeling

Start Date:
Oct. 3, 2023
End Date:
Oct. 10, 2023
We will cover the basics of natural hazard risk modeling and exposure development with a focus on fusing data from multiple datasets expressly for the purposes of risk assessment. We will also present examples applying the techniques to applications related to flood risk assessment, climate adaptation, and earthquake modeling.
Targeted Audience:
Advanced-level students interested in risk assessment and climate change adaptation, emergency managers, risk modelers, GIS analysts, EO researchers and analysts, Structural Engineers, climate adaptation researchers and planners
Expected Outcomes:
By the end of this training attendees will be able to: -Recognize what building vulnerability is and why it is important for risk modeling -Identify the core elements of natural hazard risk modeling and asset loss estimation -Identify fundamental approaches for developing building-exposure models using Earth Observation data and tools -Apply a basic procedure to model built infrastructure exposure and vulnerability characteristics from Earth Observation data -Evaluate building-specific exposure data sets to identify key components for fit, validity, consistency and rectify bias -Evaluate the appropriate use of modeled building exposure data to a given community -Apply strategies to identify and address equity and bias considerations -Apply approaches to validate building data with imagery for regional datasets -Document your exposure development process through metadata so that others can understand the process used, the limitations, and how to update if necessary.
