Welcome to the Disasters Cluster
The overarching objective of the ESIP Disaster Lifecyle Cluster is to facilitate connections and coordinate efforts among data providers, managers and developers of disaster response systems and tools, and end-user communities within ESIP.
This Cluster's strategic plan is currently in work. We welcome all feedback and comments.
Examples of topics that the cluster can address include:
- Identify disaster response full-cycle
- Map dataset types to disaster types by leveraging existing efforts
- Assess and prioritize use cases and user needs
- Assess existing capabilities and processes
- Assess common architecture patterns to disaster response
- Develop webinars or other outreach plans to raise awareness with end-users
A rolling notes page is available on here on Google Docs. Disasters Cluster Members are encouraged to add to the notes during the meeting and afterwards as needed.
Links to the telecons (as available) are linked below.
- Next Meeting is in person, during the ESIP 2018 Summer Meeting, July 17-21, 2018.
The primary session is Operational Readiness Levels Establishing Trusted Data to Improve Situational Awareness and will be held on July 17th at 4pm local time.
