NPS-DHS Earthquake Response Project Page

Welcome to the Earthquake Response Project home page. This page is designed to be both a guide and a portal to the various remote sensing and geographic information sources, data, products, and instructional playbooks that have been developed for this project.

Sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science & Technology Directorate, the Remote Sensing Center (RSC) at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) has completed work on a pilot project that explored the use of remote sensing imagery and other geographic information in support of earthquake response. The objective of the NPS Earthquake Response Project was to improve response and recovery through the delivery and integration of remotely-sensed data into existing Emergency Management Concept of Operations (CONOPS). These remote sensing datasets and derived products are designed to be a valuable source of information in support of emergency planning, change detection, and post-disaster event assessment, response, and management.
