SENSUM Field campaign

Successful completion of SENSUM Field campaign 2014 @ Tajikistan

From 17th - 25th June , 2014 the team-1 for exposure and vulnerability has completed the field survey of the research project SENSUM in Jirgatol, Republic of Tajikistan

In accordance with the previously planned works, all planned works were successfully executed in a total number of 49 villages from 10 districts.

Exposure / vulnerability / occupancy / socio-economical parameters:

− collection of basic data concerning human exposure in the selected area 

− in-situ exposure/vulnerability assessments on a subset of buildings 

− Collection of occupancy / socio-economical data 


− road types & conditions

− Schools and kindergardens 

− hospitals 

− critical facilities like fire brigades, civil protection stations, etc

SENSUM Study Areas

A novel sampling framework will be developed that guides the in-situ data collection and integration process. Novel in-situ data collection tools (e.g. omni-directional imaging) will be included. Advanced analysis and processing of current and future space-based products will enhance the approach. Uncertainties will be fully considered. Soon-to-be-released space products such as DLR Global Urban Footprint will be validated and their integration with the proposed methodologies explored. Data needs for post-disaster recovery will be addressed within the same framework, resulting in a comprehensive methodological solution to the monitoring of time-varying indicators at multiple spatial scales throughout the disaster cycle.

The consortium of 8 prominent scientific institutions and highly skilled SMEs has considerable experience in their respective fields. Many partners currently collaborate on the Global Earthquake Model Inventory Data Collection Tool (GEM IDCT). The ultimate goal is to produce a multi-resolution time varying indicator monitoring framework that applies to the whole disaster cycle. The framework is intended to· become the de-facto standard for future mapping of vulnerabilities.
