Professor Wang Juanle, project technical director of the IKCEST Disaster Risk Reduction Knowledge Service, presented the development of application of Disaster Risk Reduction Knowledge Service System in the 25th International Conference on Geoinformatics on Aug. 3, 2017 in Buffalo, NY, USA. More than 270 experts in geoinformatics field joined the conference. Prof. Wang's report enables the Disaster Risk Reduction Knowledge Service System of IKCEST to be known by more scientists in the international science communities.
Prof.Wang's report introduced that the disaster risk reduction was an urgent task facing the world. Many developing countries were weak on the disaster risk reduction information processing and application capacity. Knowledge service played important role in disaster risk reduction field in the Big Data era. Driven by the UNESCO's disaster prevention and reduction mission, a Disaster Risk Reduction Knowledge Service was designed and developed supported by the International Knowledge Centre for Engineering Sciences and Technology under the Auspices of UNESCO. Its core contents included drawing up global standard or best practice on disaster metadata, establishing global disaster meta-database, integrating cross-disciplinary, cross-field and cross-region data and information resources in earthquake, draught and flood disaster, pushing forward the database development method and the knowledge information service model on disaster risk reduction, establishing the DRR knowledge service system with the support of big data mining and analysis techniques, carrying out education, training and technology exchange on disaster risk reduction. The initial platform and knowledge service application has been applied in China.
