|Abstract:||The timelines and accuracy the of information provided and used are recognized as being critical when dealing with emergencies. The tradi-tional ways to display much of the information in maps had many limita-tions, which are now being overcome with major progress in the way data are collected, organised, accessed, and communicated. This chapter pro-vides an overview of current Earth Observation capacity with some exam-ples in relation to forest fires and floods that serve to illustrate the main characteristics including governance and exisiting limitations. The chapter also discusses how new developments in the way individuals can contrib-ute geo-referenced information may be of considerable value in addressing some of the limitations identified, particularly when time is of the essence, as is the case in emergencies.|
