Geo-Information for Disaster Management
Geo-information for Disaster management (Gi4DM) is an annual conference devoted to the use and application of geo-information technology in disaster management. The fundamental goal of the conference is to provide a forum where disaster managers, stakeholders, researchers, data providers and system developers can discuss challenges, share experience, discuss new ideas, demonstrate technology and analyse future research toward better support of risk and disaster management activities.
Eight editions of these conferences have taken place in Delft, The Netherlands, (March 2005), Goa, India, (September 2006), Toronto, Canada, (May 2007), Harbin, China (August, 2008), Prague, Czech Republic (January 2009), Turin, Italy (February 2010), Antalya, Turkey (May, 2011) and Enschede, the Netherlands (december, 2012) . The Night Gi4DM is going to take place in Hanoi, Vietnam (December 2013).
Gi4DM has been organised in cooperation with different international bodies such as ISPRS, UNOOSA, ICA, ISCRAM FIG, IAG OGC, WFP and supported by national organisations such as GIN (Netherlands) and CIG (Canada). Since 2008, Gi4DM is coordinated by the Joint Board of Geospatial Information Societies (JB GIS) ad-hoc Committee on Risk and Disaster Management.
The purpose of this web site is to preserve as much as possible the impressions of all symposia, the innovative ideas, papers, presentations, publications and workshop and thereby strengthen the links between Geo-specialists and Disaster managers.
