Here's a look at the benefits of the disaster monitoring system:
- Deployment of Rescue Teams: This application maps the locations of rescue teams nearest to the disaster-affected areas along with their availability and strength. This can be used to make strategic decisions about which teams can be deployed for conducting timely and effective rescue operations.
- Relief Management: It can be used to identify the nearest warehouses containing the required relief materials so that they can be distributed to the shelters.
- Route Analysis: This functionality provides road service information about the service roads, dirt roads, lanes, highways, streets, other motorable roads etc. leading to the disaster-affected area. This helps in identifying the shortest and most feasible routes that can be taken to conduct rescue operations or provide relief to shelters.
Hence, it works as a decision-support system for disaster preparedness and to manage relief and rehabilitation during and after disaster.
