Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems can assist in the assessment of damage (damage assessment)

In the relief phase, PJ Data and GIS in combination with Global Positioning System (GPS) is useful in the search and rescue operations in areas that are difficult to reach. The impact of the disaster resulting in damage to infrastructure. Remote sensing can help in the damage assessment and disaster monitoring and provide a quantitative basis in disaster relief operations.

In the disaster rehabilitation phase GIS is used to organize information based on the damage census information, and can be used dalama site evaluation for the reconstruction process. Remote sensing is used to map the new situation of the disaster and renew the database for the reconstruction of the area, and can be used in assisting the process again in case of disaster prevention.
