Geographic Information Systems and risk assessment

Funded under: FP7-JRC

Abstract

This report presents projects developed by the Unit IPSC/SERAC regarding the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for supporting the study of critical infrastructures and the security/defence industry. It also discusses how risk assessment can benefit from geographical representations. Risk assessments have an important spatial component and GIS can be central to risk identification, quantification, and evaluation. Furthermore it presents a wide-ranging description of different GIS techniques and web-technologies, and its potential application to supporting the European Program for Critical Infrastructure Protection, and the mapping of the European Defence Industry.
