VİSKON-RS: Rapid damage assessment software with remote sensing

After a disaster, a rapid damage assessment is required for coordinating emergency response teams and planning emergency aid. In this study, in line with AFAD requirements, VİSKON-RS software was developed for the aim of using disaster damage assessment by analysing images obtained via remote(space/air) imaging technologies. The developed software includes specialized applications for damage assessment of disaster types such as earthquake, flood and forest fires.

In addition, applications for general image analysis were integrated to the software like change detection analysis, supervised/unsupervised classification, object based image analysis and texture analysis. The main purpose of VISKON-RS software is to be integrated software solution by opening, processing, analysing, showing and exporting results to decision support system of post-disaster remote sensing data.
