Integrating User-Generated Content and Spatial Data into Web GIS for Disaster History

Information on the damage area is critical in prompt disaster response. This information is supposed to be produced by organizations involved in disaster management. In reality, due to limited resources, comprehensive and updated data are not easily obtainable. Therefore, an alternative way to collect data is urgently needed. General public can play an important role in producing these types of data, but there are some drawbacks to resolve in this approach including validity and integration with existing spatial data. This paper presents a framework in per-forming geoprocessing to validate geographic references submitted by users and integrate them with the existing spatial database, i.e., parcel, hydrology, facility. The proposed framework will surely lead us to create a more complete spatial data of the damage that are to be utilized in a web based GIS application for effective disaster management.
