Geospatial Disaster Management

Prof. Josef Strobl (Chair of UNIGIS International and Director of Z_GIS) was invited to deliver the prestigious 'Professor S. P. Chatterjee Memorial Lecture' to the 31st Annual conference of the Indian National Cartographic Association (INCA). This highly anticipated lecture only is organised once every three years, as a tribute to the 'father of Indian Geography', who served as president of the IGU and received the highest scientific awards from his country.

Presenting this lecture, Prof. Strobl on Oct 15 in Chandigarh, India, spoke on "Map Interfaces for Disaster Management", discussing and demonstrating how GIScience and online geospatial techniques play very significant roles throughout the full disaster management cycle.
