Modelling Exposure Through Earth Observation Routines: METEOR

HOT Program

HOT has partnered with the British Geological Survey (BGS), ImageCat, and the Global Earthquake Model (GEM) on a UK Space Agency funded initiative focused on developing innovative applications of Earth Observation (EO) technologies to improve understanding of exposure.

HOT has partnered with the British Geological Survey (BGS), ImageCat, and the Global Earthquake Model (GEM) on a UK Space Agency funded initiative focused on developing innovative applications of Earth Observation (EO) technologies to improve understanding of exposure.

The project, METEOR is aimed at building local and global resilience through innovation in order to better identify risk and enable more effective decision-making, delivering exposure data for 48 of the least developed Official Development Assistance (ODA) countries.

METEOR has a specific focus on the countries of Nepal and Tanzania, with the partners of the project working closely with the National Society for Earthquake Technology (NSET) and the Disaster Management Department of the United Republic of Tanzania.
