Paper Abstract

This paper describes designation of an integrated system for urban disasters monitoring and management. Multi sensor application for urban hazard monitoring, can be conducted with appropriate models in GIS and internet based communication infrastructure to provide a solution for real time urban hazards contingency and emergency response. The system architect includes a module called command and control system, designed for managing and coordinating urban accidents response. Command and control system coordinates all tasks related to accident emergency response through urban hazard administration office. The structure also includes web based accident data dissemination scheme through internet portal which act as a communication system to connect accident managers in administration office with accident relief operators on the ground. All components of the system including database, central repository system, command and control system, communication system, and urban disaster models are described. This new development in geomatics application can be used for other hazards monitoring and management in the environment.
