With the dawn of human civilization, came the beginning of modern day disasters. Disasters come in all shapes and sizes and can be very detrimental to people in many ways. This has led to the implementation of disaster management practices in order to lessen the detrimental effects that disasters can cause. With the implementation of disaster management, comes the never ending effort to try and gain the upper hand on disasters. New technologies are being discovered every day for countless applications around the globe. Geomatics, or the branch of science that deals with the analysis, collection, and interpretation of data relating to the earth's surface is no exception. There are many new technologies available today that weren't available even a few years ago. More specifically, many of these advances in monitoring, analyzing and surveying are aiding the effectiveness of modern day disaster management practices. As an editor, I have shed light on some of the work being performed by modern day professionals in the geomatics field in regards to disaster management. Some of the information in this book caters the analysis of the Earth's surface after disasters have occurred. Other information caters to the implementation of technologies to analyze the risks of disasters that may have not occurred yet. From 3-D modeling to GPS mapping to remote sensing, there is a broad array of information compiled within this book pertaining to the use of geomatics in the disaster management field; I hope that it will be found useful for teaching, learning and research alike.
