Application of Google Earth Engine in Open NAPs (Michigan State Univ)

Synopsis: Google Earth Engine is a cloud-based platform for geospatial analysis bringing the power of geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing at scales up to the global level. It relies on Google’s massive computational capabilities to process huge amounts of data with ease. It is an innovative integrated platform designed to bring supercomputing power to a wide audience without having high levels of technical capacity. To apply these tools in Open NAPs and eventually in NAPs in different countries without the need to invest heavily in GIS and RS processing infrastructure, the Google Earth Engine offers an easy and obvious solution.

This brief session via a recorded video presentation, will do the following: (a) Introduce GEE and how to access it and use it; (b) Introduce an initial set of essential data for adaptation assessment and planning useful for Open NAPs, (c) Discuss plans for a way forward to expand and enrich an Open NAP data catalog.

Synopsis: DHL Resilience 360, a cloud-based supply-chain risk management solution which first started as an innovation project. DHL Resilience360 was devised as a cloud-based risk management platform and early warning system, which enables organizations to visualize and track their supply chain operations end-to-end. The platform makes use of vast databases and advanced analytical and incident identification tools to allow near real-time monitoring of possible disruptions, such as natural disasters, weather issues, cargo impact, political instability or cyber-attacks, so that risks can be mitigated before they cause financial or reputational damage. This online demonstration will demonstrate the DHL system and how it being used to support day to day operations. Presentation by  Shehrina Kamal, DHL
