SEismic Risk evaluation through integrated use of Geographical Information Systems and Artificial Intelligence techniques

Remote sensing

Remote sensing has gained increasing interest by the scientific community working on risks and on hazard forecast.

As far as earthquakes are considered, satellite images can be used mainly to detect most vulnerable areas, in terms of accessibility and shape of built and natural environments. An attempt has been done to evaluate costs and benefit of texture analysis on a satellite image of Barcelon, trying to understand if and with what level of detail it was possible to assess roads width, buildings influence, etc.
