Objectives

The commission aims at

  • Providing leadership in the development of concepts, ontologisation and standardization for early warning, hazard, risk and vulnerability mapping.
  • Promoting the cartographic use of remotely sensed and other geospatial data for early warning and crisis management through scientific conferences, seminars and workshops.
  • Investigating psychological condition of end user given by their personal character and situation and psychological condition of rescued persons (with support of ubiquitous and adaptive mapping).
  • Fostering quality mapping and cartographic modeling, including state-of-the-art visualization technologies, geospatial processing and publishing tools, for early warning and crisis management through topic related publication activities.
  • Participating and contributing to global initiatives in early warning and crisis management through the maintenance of a website, newsletters and social network channels.
  • Promoting the development of dynamic and real-time cartographic visualization concepts and techniques for enhanced operational early warning activities through active collaboration with governmental authorities.
  • Establishing and cultivating professional networks for exchange of information among stakeholders in the domains of crisis management and early warning.
  • Developing mechanisms of command and control systems integration as well as improve real-time data-centric intelligence based on field sensors for purposes of Crisis Management.
  • Developing mapping methodologies and technologies for EW&CM in children perspectives. Promoting the process of teaching, understanding and using maps for EW&CM in children aspects.

History

  • For a number of years the ICA has developed a focus on Early Warning and Crisis/Disaster/Risk management.
  • Contemporary Chair of the Working Group, Prof. Milan Konečný, first elaborated on the need for cartography and GIScience to be actively involved in this area at the Second International Conference on Early Warning (EWC II) in 2003.
  • ICA was between the first members of JBGIS who started to deal with the problem. The topic of Early Warning and Crisis Management was also incorporated into the 2005 Memorandum of Understanding between the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs and the ICA.
  • At the 13th ICA General Assembly, held in 2005 in conjunction with the ICC in La Coruna, was agreed to establish a Working Group on Early Warning and Crisis Management, which has been upgraded on Commission in 2007 at ICC in Moscow.
