The NEOHAZ project will be funded by the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities for a second phase till the end of 2018. This prolonging enables further research about the integration of implicit knowledge from non-scientists in disaster management. The findings and methods of the first part will be used within the context of a [...]

The main objective of this public workshop is to bring together experts from Geosciences and 3D Earth observation / Geomatics, from academia and industry, as well as from [...]
Studies based on information acquired by participative geographic approaches have sought to cope with emergency situations and disasters such as floods. However, the impact of these approaches to flood risk governance systems in order to understand these types of events as a complete risk cycle is still not clear. In a recent paper, we analyse [...]
Last week Carolin Klonner, Melanie Eckle and Benjamin Herfort attended the 13th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management in Rio de Janeiro.
The ISCRAM community is globally active and brings together researchers, academics, practitioners as well as policy makers to promote research and development of information systems for crisis [...]
A second trip to Santiago de Chile was carried out during the first half of May 2016, in which NEOHAZ team members Carolin Klonner and Tomás Usón were teaching at the Heidelberg Center for Latin America (HCLA) as well as conducting research for the NEOHAZ project related to urban flood risk management.
The block module GIS [...]
During the first half of May 2015, Bernhard Höfle and his NEOHAZ team members Carolin Klonner, Sabrina Marx and Tomás Usón were teaching at the Heidelberg Center for Latin America (HCLA) in Santiago de Chile as well as conducting research for the NEOHAZ project related to urban flood risk management. The project aims at analysing [...]
