This event aimed to investigate how earth observation, satellite and geospatial technologies help to better quantify earthquake risk.
The event was jointly organised by the AGI Insurance and Risk SIG, and The Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society (RSPSoc), and was free to attend.
Speakers and Presentations included:
- Tina Thomson, RSPSoc and Abigail Page, AGI - Event intro and welcome from RSPSoc and AGI
- Forbes McKenzie, McKenzie Intelligence Services - Introducing the Lloyd's of London Claims Imagery & Intelligence Service
- Tim Wright, University of Leeds - Monitoring Earth's dynamic crust from space
- Gareth Crisford, Earth-I - Optical satellite imagery for earthquake damage assessment
- Rashmin Gunasekera, World Bank - Use of EO satellite information within the Global Rapid-post-disaster Damage Estimation (GRADE) Approach
- Tim Ancheta, RMS - Transforming liquefaction modelling with geostatistics
- Stuart Marsh, University of Nottingham - GEO's support for the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
- Charlie Huyck, ImageCat - Reducing catastrophe model uncertainty with EO data
- Rachel Holley, CGG NPA - Mapping fault-related displacements using satellite InSAR: an example across the Los Angeles Basin, USA
