Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The scale, intensity and prevalence of emergencies and disasters are increasing around the world. Advances in geospatial information can help scientists, citizens, government leaders and industry to understand what is needed, and how to find it, in the event of a crisis. Geomatics engineering and geospatial services can help to save lives, protect the environment and protect key resources and critical infrastructure systems. Geospatial information is critical for all phases of the disaster management cycle, from developing preparedness solutions to supporting command and control. After a disaster, GIS, remote sensing and GPS systems can help to prioritize response and recovery efforts.
