Enabling local community disaster preparedness and building community resilience by improving the quality of data about community strengths, resources and assets is the focus of recently released research.
The project is a collaboration between the Swinburne node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society (ADM+S) and Australian Red Cross.
The research defined a gap in existing humanitarian mapping and the use of open, public and social media data in humanitarian contexts and came up with a method and toolkit for the effective use of community assets data.
