Abstract: This chapter covers two main topics. The first deals with rapid mapping of damages for generating an overview, while the second deals with detailed assessement of damages. For the topic rapid mapping, fast procedures and methods for obtaining overview maps and information from satellite imagery are the main focus. For the second topic, production of accurate and detailed information from satellite imagery is more of an issue. The chapter is based on the activities of the various partners that have contributed to the GMOSS work package handling this subject. These activities comprise both security issues as well as natural disasters.
