    Humanitarians in the Sky: How UAVs are Changing Disaster Response

    REGISTER HERE

    Date: 19 August 2014

    Time: 11:00 a.m. New York, EDT ( convert to your time )

    Speaker: Patrick Meier (PhD), iRevolution

    About this Webinar: Satellite imagery has played an important role in humanitarian response for almost two decades. But tasking a satellite, acquiring the imagery and analyzing the results is still a time consuming and expensive process. In addition, cloud cover and data sharing restrictions further limit the use and dissemination of satellite imagery following major disasters. 

    In contrast, UAVs can be deployed locally and thus more quickly. The resolution of aerial imagery is also significantly higher than the resolution of satellite images. Furthermore, aerial imagery poses fewer challenges around data sharing. Lastly, the cost of small and light-weight UAVs is falling dramatically. This explains why humanitarian organizations are increasingly turning to UAVs for disaster response and recovery projects. 

    This talk will highlight three such efforts in the Philippines, Haiti and the Balkans. The increasing use of UAVs in humanitarian settings prompted the launch of the Humanitarian UAV Network (UAViators), which seeks to facilitate the safe and responsible use of humanitarian UAVs. UAViators has produced the first ever Code of Conduct on the use of UAVs in humanitarian settings and is actively carrying out applied research on UAV technologies and legislation. In closing, the talk will address the use of UAVs beyond imagery capture and will conclude with a note on the need for innovative policies around the use of humanitarian UAVs.
