Remote Sensing from Space Book Review:

David Stevens Space-based information, which includes earth observation data, is increasingly becoming an integral part of our lives. We have been relying for decades on data obtained from meteorological satellites for updates on the weather and to monitor weather-related natural disasters such as hurricanes. We now count on our personal satellite-based navigation systems to guide us to the nearest Starbucks Coffee and use web-based applications such as Google Earth and Microsoft Virtual Earth to study the area of places we will or would like to visit. At the same time, satellite-based technologies have experienced impressive growth in recent years with an increase in the number of available sensors, an increase in spatial, temporal and spectral resolutions, an increase in the availability of radar satellites such as Terrasar-X and ALOS, and the launching of specific constellations such as the Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC), COSMO- SkyMed (COnstellation of small Satellites for the Mediterranean basin Observation) and RapidEye. Even more recent are the initiatives being set-up to ensure that space-based information is being accessed and used by decision makers, such as Sentinel Asia for the Asia and Pacific region and SERVIR for the Latin America and Caribbean region.

Applications of Space Techniques on the Natural Hazards in the MENA Region Book Review:

This book introduces a comprehensive understanding in the use of space techniques in natural hazards and risk management in the MENA Region. The book is based on different case-studies from 25 MENA countries, and will be useful in highlighting the issues from all aspects. In recent years the number of natural hazard events has increased in the MENA Region. This is exacerbated by the changing climate and extreme climate events, as well as a large increase in the population in this area. Disastrous events occur on a yearly basis characterized by a vulnerability of physical processes. Floods, earthquakes, and mass movement result in severe damage to property and livelihoods, and have devastating effects upon the environment. These events cause severe financial losses, which on an annual basis, can exceed millions of dollars. The predication, assessment and monitoring approaches remain inadequate in managing these hazards and in mitigating their impacts, but with the development of space techniques and geo-information systems, these situations can now be better managed. The miscellany of satellite images, with different spatial and temporal resolutions, enable the detection of terrain features and provide indications of potential natural risks. This book will of interest to stakeholders, including field experts, academics, researchers and decision makers.

Disaster Management in the Complex Himalayan Terrains Book Review:

South Asia, harboring the complex Himalayan terrains, has over one-fifth of the worlds population and is recognized as the most hazard-prone region of the world. The exponential increase in population with the consequent pressure on natural resources and continued high rates of poverty and food insecurity also makes this region the most vulnerable region to hazards in the world as far as the impacts of climate change are concerned. Over the last century, the climatic trends in South-Asia have been observed to be characterized by increasing air temperatures and an increasing trend in the intensity and frequency of extreme events. IPCC (2014) has reported that the Himalayan highlands shall face significant warming over the next century. The increasing frequency of natural hazards due to the impacts of climate change in the Himalayas calls for efficient management and policymaking in these regions, which can only be implemented by the local governments through an established science-based robust action plan. This edited volume focuses on the management of natural hazards using innovative techniques of spatial information sciences and satellite remote sensing. It contains chapters from eminent researchers and experts in the field of hazard management, remote sensing, and GIS. The primary focus of this book is to replenish the gap in the available literature on the subject by bringing the concepts, theories, and practical experiences of the specialists and professionals in this field together in one volume to help students, researchers, and policymakers to address issues concerning management and policy implications of natural hazards in the complex Himalayan region.

The book emphasizes a contemporary view on the role of higher level fusion in designing crisis management systems, and provide the formal foundations, architecture and implementation strategies required for building dynamic current and future situational pictures, challenges of, and the state of the art computational approaches to designing such processes. This book integrates recent advances in decision theory with those in fusion methodology to define an end-to-end framework for decision support in crisis management. The text discusses modern fusion and decision support methods for dealing with heterogeneous and often unreliable, low fidelity, contradictory, and redundant data and information, as well as rare, unknown, unconventional or even unimaginable critical situations. Also the book examines the role of context in situation management, cognitive aspects of decision making and situation management, approaches to domain representation, visualization, as well as the role and exploitation of the social media.

Advanced Methods for IDP and Refugee Camp Mapping with Very High Resolution Satellite Imagery Book Review:

Due to natural and man-made disasters, worldwide millions of people are seeking shelter in camps. Most of these camps are under supervision of national and international relief organizations which are responsible for supplying the camps with basic necessities. Therefore, knowing the number of inhabitants is an essential aspect for the effective management of the logistics. This study aims to show that very high resolution satellite imagery can be used for counting residential numbers by extractions of actual shelters in the camps. Based on recent publications, methods for shelter extraction were examined and modified. With images derived from IKONOS (1 m resolution) of two Refugee/IDP (Internally Displaced People) camps in eastern Chad a visual interpretation, three pixel-based approaches and one object-based analysis were tested. Additionally, a visual interpretation of images recorded by the new radar satellite TerraSAR-X was applied to show the possibilities for refugee camp mapping with spatially very high resolution radar. In this context, IKONOS and TerraSAR-X images were combined. The pixel and object-based methods for shelter extraction were discussed with regard to their accuracy and time expenditure as well as the possibilities for their implementation in diverse crisis situations. Therefore an exhaustive accuracy assessment on users, producers and overall accuracy was performed. Moreover, the different characteristics of the images were discussed. It was shown that the overall accuracy of the different methods ranges from about 34% to 88%. This discrepancy is due to characteristics of the shelters in the two campsites and the diverse methods for extraction. The object-based approach turned out to be the most robust technique with regard to the transferability to other imagery. The combined method of IKONOS and TerraSAR-X showed a high potential for more precise techniques in shelter mapping for future approaches.
