Project

RASOR : Rapid Analysis and Spatialisation of Risk

Description:

The Rapid Analysis and Spatialisation and Of Risk (RASOR) project will develop a platform to perform multi-hazard risk analysis to support the full cycle of disaster management, including targeted support to critical infrastructure monitoring and climate change impact assessment. RASOR overlays archived and near-real time very-high resolution optical and radar satellite data, combined with in-situ data for both global and local applications. The RASOR Consortium will offer three tracks of services: a global risk assessment service, and SME-led national and local services through innovative partnering arrangements in each national marketplace. These tracks are validated in five different geographic locations (Haiti, Indonesia, Italy, Netherlands and Greece) with end users and practitioners, as well as with international organisations representing three different markets (World Bank; UNOSAT; Munich Re and RMS; and the European Commission’s agencies interested in risk management issues).
