Dear Colleagues and Friends,
I would like to pay your attantion for down described Special Issue of the IJGI (ISPRS).  I am Guest Editor of it.
Please inform also your colleagues about this possibility.

Special Issue title: Smart Solutions for Disaster Risk Reduction: Big Data Concepts for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) 

Overall Motivation

The United Nations work to reduce disaster risk is built on the knowledge and experience of countries and other stakeholders over the past several decades. Milestones include the 1990s being declared the international decade for natural disaster reduction, the adoption of the International Framework for Action for the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction, the Yokohama Strategy and Plan of Action for a Safer World adopted by the 1st World Conference on Natural Disaster Reduction, the endorsement of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction, and the adoption of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) at the 2nd World Conference on Disaster Reduction.

The last U.N. Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) conference in Sendai, Japan (March 18, 2015) decided to continue in best practices for the present and also to enhance the sustainability of all efforts through the deeper, wider, and complex approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction, formulated in four most important priorities: 1. Understanding disaster risk; 2. Strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk; 3. Investing in disaster risk reduction for resilience; and 4. Enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response and to “Build Back Better” in recovery, rehabilitation, and reconstruction.

As never before, such U.N. efforts are formulated expectations from research and science, which would make all efforts more progressive, effective, and efficient. In realizations of priorities, it is expected that space and (geo)spatial methods and technologies and various parts of mapping (e.g., risk one) will be fully included. Moreover, our research efforts can fill up ISPRS intentions about “the central role of imagery and derived products in disaster management and homeland establishment, complementing its traditional central place in defence”. GI Science can also offer new and strong efforts, such as VGI (Volunteer Geographic Information),  VGE (Virtual Geographic Environments), new ways of fully use Big Data, personalization of maps, by understanding context and adaptive cartography, etc. These, all together, can progressively improve the quality of the disaster risk management cycle (preparedness, early warning, alert, assessment, etc.) and also, and it is the main topic of this Special Issue, to improve complex smart solutions for the realization of Disaster Risk Reduction tasks.

Aims of this Special Issue

This Special Issue aims to promote innovative concepts, methods and tools that help in solving current and future problems in DRR, assisted by space and (geo)spatial technologies,  approaches in GI Science, and mapping.

Global, national, and local level development, which periodically updates and disseminates, as appropriate, location-based disaster risk information, is expected from our research communities. There are requests to design and improve risk maps for decision makers, the general public, and communities at risk of exposure to disaster, in an appropriate format by using, as applicable, geospatial information technology; e.g., to promote real-time access to reliable data, make use of space and in situ information, including geographic information systems (GIS), and use information and communications innovations, and, last but not least, to enhance measurement tools and the collection, analysis, and dissemination of data.

Very important is to formulate the role of Big Data technologies and methods and potentials of newly appearing activities, such as citizen science, which should also effectively enhance  approaches used in DRR.


In line with the specific DRR context, as outlined above, we would like to invite original research contributions on the following topics (which might be extended):

Space Solutions:
Remote Sensing Usability for DRR
Matching RS and PE to 2D maps and 3D models
Remote sensing in different disaster management phases (warning, monitoring, relief, assessment and recovery).
UAV application in DRR
Open RS clouds for DRR
New sensor data for disaster monitoring and response
Sensor cloud for disaster data acquisition
Multi-source RS data fusion for disaster management
Automated disaster information extraction from RS data
Automated 3D scene reconstruction for disaster management
