Paper Abstract

One of the main objectives of image processing is to optimize visualization of particular thematic dataset. The processing methodology and strategy are very different from broadband image processing in many aspects. This strategy highly depends on the application and its objectives. For natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis which affect a large area, the data obtained from satellite image processing can be utilized. The data can be used for disaster management for rescue and relief plan during disaster and disaster preparedness for future disasters. In order to meet objectives of disaster management, it is normally required to have a complete information system. The type of disaster may also dictate the type of processing and interpretation technique of images. This paper reviews the methods of satellite image processing and also the disaster management requirements. Based in these two issues the advantages and limitations of image processing methods have been discussed considering important natural disasters.
