ABSTRACT

The conventional disaster response in South Korea was mainly based on experiences and subjective judgement of on-site responders. However, a growing number of new types of disasters requires a systematic disaster response and management. In order to reduce the uncertainty of a physical modeling in damage prediction, the use of disaster statistics including the past damage data becomes more critical. Therefore, in this study, we developed a Disaster Situation Analysis System (DSAS) based on national disaster statistics on heavy rains and typhoons which frequently caused damages across South Korea. The main function of the system is to search the past history of disaster damage in the disaster areas and relevant data and statistics relating to similar cases. This system is currently being used for disaster response tasks of the Central Headquarters of Safety and Countermeasures Against Disasters in South Korea. In order to better cope with future disasters at the national level, the system used for heavy rains and typhoons should be expanded to include all types of natural disasters such as heavy snow and strong winds.
