With use of modern computing power, we develop a new framework to search and detect the impact of natural disaster by integrating real-time computing, damage/loss estimation models, remote sensing and geo-informatics. The most important mission of our laboratory is to enhance the capabilities of disaster response/relief efforts and humanitarian activities by providing our research outcomes with particular regard to searching and mapping the areas and impacts of natural disasters.
