SATELLITES AIDING DISASTER RECOVERY

SATELLITES CAN…
WeatherSatellite data can feed into models which can help predict weather patterns to better inform decision making for every day use, as well as in emergencies.
Asses DamageEO satellites look down at the Earth. This means they can assess damage in hard to reach locations and provide near real-time information to help make better-informed decisions.
Flood plainEO satellites monitor the Earth as it orbits. This continual information provides decision-makers with regular and consistent information to help monitor and predict potential impact of unusual activities.
InternetSatellites provide continual communication when terrestrial or mobile communications are interrupted.  Satellites link communication in rural, remote and dangerous locations.
AmbSatellite navigation, weather forecasting and imagery enable workers to create new maps quickly to provide alternative routes in a disaster relief zone.
Navigation satellites can identify alternative routes which can be quickly communicated to emergency services and locals in rural areas.
3d mapsSatellites can identify and provide alerts for potential subsidence or landslips.
Map.
