Using Social Networks and Commercial Remote Sensing to Assess Impacts of Natural Events on Transportation Infrastructure

Project: Research project

Project Details


This project develops a new capability to use social networks for cueing commercial remote sensing of transportation infrastructure conditions, in response to natural events. To meet these challenges, this project will develop and deliver a capability to access real-time social networks and then convert information into interoperable geospatial services. These services can be used to 'scan' for geosocial inputs to natural event impacts on transportation infrastructure, and improve the speed and accuracy of commercial imagery satellite collection of transportation infrastructure impacts. Once cueing data is available, commercial high-resolution imaging satellites will use the information to task collection over potentially affected transportation infrastructure.
