Abstract

The RAPID project is a contribution to better understand the capability of remote sensing (radar and optical) in order to quantify damage due to extreme events, such as earthquakes, eruptions, floodings and also anthropogenic disasters. In fact, requirements for emergency applications seem to be fully satisfied by Cosmo-Skymed core project: fast delivery of information requested, very high resolution data and all weather capability. The RAPID project is presented by a team of the University of Bologna. The team is constituted by a leading Professor, a co-leading advisor and two PhD, all of them with experience in the field of processing optical satellite image for disaster management application. The intention is to use Cosmo-Skymed imagery, with its unique characteristics, to develop particular applications, such as building inventories, change/damage maps and to quantify damage; optical satellite images and cartographic databases will be also used during the research. The objective is to develop application and data fusion techniques and to make them rapid and robust. The project flow will be subdivided in three subsequent modules: Module 1: a - Data homogenization. b - Information extraction Module 2: Change detection Module 3: Developing of data integration/fusion The first module is dedicated to understand how radar information can be perceived by visual interpreter and GIS analyst, in order to make the information available for emergency application. This workflow will be very practical, in particular when used together with OPEN GIS standards for interoperable information exchange. The intention of module 2 is to develop change detection procedures that exploit Cosmo-Skymed capability to map disaster information in hours after an event occurs. With applications of data homogenization of module 1, it will be possible to arrive to a damage map and to a quantitative evaluation of damage produced. The third module will be devoted to integrate all information coming from heterogeneous data sources, with the aim to provide at the end of the study period factive Cosmo-Skymed derived products available to the International Community. The capability to integrate RAPID research to GMES platform will be considered as one of the priority.
