Case Studies

These are analyses of a particular place or set of places. These studies should be focused on climate or enivironmental vulnerability as related to climate geography and the characteristics of the people and places within exposed areas. These studies could be sectoral (i.e. water infrastructure) or cross-cutting (i.e. poverty, development, general vulnerability).

    Very interesting post, Javier. When I look at these maps, I wonder how we could supplement the critical live information coming in with more informative base maps. Terrain provides little added information, but base maps with demographic and social data would really expand the understanding of the context in which the disaster is unfolding.

  • Yes, sure. This was a demostration exercise. The shown maps are certainly terrain are were the ones available at that platform, but if we count with more differentiated demographic ones , its just about uploading the corresponding layer.

    A simple layer with population data would have done a big difference , also if we could overlay quality of housing data. This was about to be done with CONRED and the NSO but again, this was a demostration.

  • Great to hear! So then the next step after integrating those layers is to have some way to connect the two analytically (not just visually). But as you say, this kind of layering is well within the scope of what many NSOs can do (in fact, the base layers are probably easier than the real time data).
