Measuring the impact of natural disasters real-time is key to improve resilience. It is necessary to assess the impact not only physically but its social-economic and psychological impact. Also, the resilience needs financial mechanisms that require precise quantification of all the dimensions of the disaster. Humanitarian organizations need this information real-time and in a reliable way.
Using big data and open data to solve this problem opens new opportunities for humanitarian stakeholders. Big data provides reliable fingerprints of the social and physical impact of the disaster that cannot be mistaken or misused. Big Data also allows real-time quantification provided data sharing mechanisms. Our approach tackles this problem with a responsible protocol to access privacy-risky data in a secure way.
