Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

Recent studies have highlighted the variety of ways in which geoinformation contributes to Disaster and Risk Management (DRM) practices. Geoinformation and associated technologies also play a central part in new methods for assessing costs and benefits of DRM and of disaster related damages and losses. Determining the economic value of geospatial information in DRM itself, however, remains an understudied topic.
