Disaster & Emergency.
Recent disasters such as Australia's bushfires and floods, to global health pandemics such as COVID-19, spotlights the critical role that technology plays during times of disaster. Technology is integral to the delivery of fast, effective and critical decision-making when managing natural disasters and health crises.
The use of social media, drones, satellite imagery through GIS, real-time disaster modeling, and widespread connectedness enables more efficient and necessary information flow. Real-time data allows emergency management to develop more targeted response plans.
