- Using Copernicus Early Warning Systems CEMS-fire, CEMS-flood and C3S products to prioritize the volunteer mapping of exposure and vulnerability
Having timely access to information is crucial element of any emergency response activities. Therefore we will try to combine the strength of the Copernicus EWS to provide early warning on possible extreme situation with the early activation of volunteer mapping community specifically on the mapping dynamic changes in exposure and vulnerability (e.g. dynamic changes in population, landuse changes due to recent disasters e.g. forest fires followed by floods).
- Crisis mapping & situational awareness in Crisis management
We will also hack on using Copernicus EWS ( (CEMS-fire, CEMS-flood), Anywhere Multi-Hazard Early Warning Systems (MH-EWS) ) with the signal derived from social media (Anywhere) and data available from European Severe Storm Laboratory to optimize triggering of the Copernicus Rapid Mapping as well as activation of the volunteer mapping community.
- Climate-forward looking mapping activations
We will try to explore the possibility to prioritize the mapping campaigns taking the information about the changes in the risk caused by changing climate. Climate change information, combined with disaster coping capacity can play a key role in mapping planning.
- Risk aware exposure and vulnerability mapping (from both Copernicus and VGIs)
Hackathon will target the Sendai Framework Indicators (Targets A, B, C, D) and their translation into easy-to-map features (e.g. education and health facilities).
