The goal of IncREO is to give actors who are responsible for the civil security and disaster administration with EO-based arrangements adding to an enhanced readiness and mitigation getting ready for territories exceptionally helpless against catastrophic natural events and the already noticeable weather and climate change patterns. Customizing of these arrangements to the clients‘ needs will likewise reflect on the short-term climate change situations, and related governing body – both on national, supranational, and European level. As a multi-hazard designed venture, in essence, it will tend to any cataclysmic event. In any case, chosen use cases such as storm surge and wave height, dam failures, floods as well as an avalanche. There is also the coverage for proper transfer of solutions for a particularly multi-risk prone test site. Besides, there is more emphasis on „resources mapping“ which is comprehended here as geolocating money related values per area unit for example €/m². By taking a technical perspective, the IncREO solutions will be founded on innovative strategies, actualized by methods for a modern mapping and modeling/systems and finally to appropriately disseminate to the pertinent partner gatherings.

What is the venture intended to accomplish?

The intention of the venture is to achieve an insurmountable contribution to the operational limits in the GMES/Copernicus setting by creating customized mapping and geodata items that are ready for deploying in the counteractive action and readiness stages – as a complementary to the Emergency Management (crisis) Service of the GMES Initial Operations. For this accomplishment, IncREO will manage the transferability of solutions to other topographical territories, and it is a primary process.

Why is this venture critical for Europe and how it can benefit European Citizens?

IncREO is critical for Europe since it adds to an up-to-date appraisal of regions vulnerable to catastrophic disaster(s) including innovative mapping and therefore offers civil protection, disaster management, and spatial planning on-screen characters which are after all for the advantage of every European resident. The latter applies additionally to the venture’s benefits mapping approach, as it is giving cross-border and regional as well as local solutions.

How does the venture surpass the present condition of information?

By investigating the already existing GMES/Copernicus solutions, it is only right to characterize those as the starting points. Progress will then be accomplished through the utilization of new EO information with higher resolution such as Pleiades, refined mapping ideas for example resources mapping and customized work processes such as for delivering [multi-]risk and powerlessness maps. The examination of the recently available EO-based items for example landscape information for hazard related applications is part of the research as well.
