    How GIS and Remote Sensing Are Playing the Most Critical Role in Disaster Management?

    India has been ranked the 14th most disaster-prone country in the world due to extreme weather-related disasters. Also, disasters are spatial in nature as they strike at a particular location and impact a specific region. GIS & remote sensing are inevitable parts of the disaster monitoring life-cycle. The preparedness stage of the pre-disaster situation is followed by during & post-disaster which is attributed to response & recovery & rehabilitation efforts.
