It is a very busy September for ITHACA staff who is participating to various international events addressing the topics of disaster risk reduction and emergency management.
ITHACA, together with more than 20 experts in the field of Satellite Emergency Mapping, participated to the IWG-SEM meeting in Bonn on 28-29 May 2015, with the goal to further consolidate cooperation mechanisms during the different phases of Emergency Mapping. The focus of the meeting was on collaborative mapping and crowdsourcing, with ad-hoc presentations from Tomnod, HOT-OSM and ImageCat. For ITHACA it was also an opportunity to strengthen the relationship with HOT-OSM.
ITHACA, together with representatives from DLR, EC, SERTIT, UN-SPIDER and USGS, participated to the IWG-SEM meeting in Oberpfaffenhofen on 20-21 May 2014 and handed over the chairmanship role, which rotates nominally on a yearly basis, to DLR.
