Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course deals with the procedures to collect, analyse and evaluate spatial information for risk assessment from natural and human-induced hazards (such as geological hazard, hydrometeorological hazards, environonmetal hazards and technological hazards). The course will guide you through the entire process of risk assessment, on the basis of a case study of a city exposed to multiple hazards, in a developing country (RiskCity).
At the end of this course you will be able to:
- understand the concepts of hazard assessment, elements at risk mapping, vulnerability assessment, and risk assessment;
- formulate the spatial data requirements for risk assessment;
- generate an elements at risk data base using GIS;
- formulate the requirements of hazard data and methods;
- apply various methods for vulnerability assessment;
- generate risk maps using qualitative and quantitative methods;
- have insight in how a risk assessment could be carried out in your own situation;
Some basic background in Geographic Information Systems is desirable, although not strictly required, as the course follows a step-by-step approach which allows participants to rapidly acquire the basic skills in handling GIS software. The course is given using Open Source GIS software (ILWIS).

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

- A theory exam
- A final project, which consists of a report including a literature review and analysis of a specific problem related to the use of GIs for risk assessment and management
- Reports on specific exercises dealing with hazard and risk assessment.
