Space Applications for Disaster Relief: The Haiti Earthquake Brief
Space-based applications and services are extremely important for emergency preparedness and recovery efforts. International organisations, space agencies, universities, and the people they serve have much interest in working together to bring space-based technology innovations to the service of communities that were, are or will inevitably be affected by disasters.
Following the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the SGAC SPIDER Group has produced a document that reviews and emphasizes these benefits of space-based applications in disaster management.
