The Australia-Indonesia Facility for Disaster Reduction (AIFDR) is a joint initiative between the governments of Australia and Indonesia. They work to strengthen Indonesia’s ability to reduce the impact of disasters. The Australian and Indonesian governments at a special ceremony on 15 July 2010 launched the Australia-Indonesia facility. The launch marks an important event in the strong relationship now shared by both countries and their united commitment to better prepare for and respond to natural disasters in Indonesia.
Free, collaborative maps are uniquely valuable to humanitarian work, especially in places where base map data is often scarce, out-of-date, or rapidly changing. OpenStreetMap is a web project to create a free and open map of the entire world, built entirely by volunteers surveying with GPS, digitising aerial imagery, and collecting and liberating existing public sources of geographic data. The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) is an initiative to apply the principles and activities of open source and open data sharing towards humanitarian response and economic development.
Universitas Gadjah Mada (internationally known as Gadjah Mada University, or UGM) is a top research university located in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The Department of Geodetic Engineering and Faculty of Engineering focuses on education, research, and community services related to geodesy and geomatics engineering, including acquisition, analysis, and uses of detailed and accurate geospatial data and large-scale maps using open source geospatial software for disaster management.
By now you should be adept in data collection techniques and have a solid foundation in analysis with QGIS. In this unit we will be focusing again on InaSAFE and QGIS skills that aid in contingency planning.
First, we will undertake a brief review of unit 2, to solidify the QGIS skills that we studied previously. Then we will begin working on another InaSAFE project using flood data as our hazard. We will consider the best possible evacuation routes and locations for IDP camps, calculate damages and losses and learn how to display them on a map.
This unit covers much of what we have been working toward. We will bring together the data which we now know how to collect in OSM, QGIS spatial analysis skills and the power of InaSAFE to help develop effective and informative contingency plans.
