HumanIT3D: innovative way to manage spatial focused projects in disaster and post-disaster context

  • Project Lead(s): Dr. Abdo Shabah

    Spatial project management based on a geographic information system (GIS) can be used in a humanitarian setting to plan optimal location of field hospitals or sanitary installations. This approach is difficult in a disaster setting, since it requires collaborative assessments, complex planning concepts and deep knowledge requirements. It also needs to be mobile, adaptive and usable, especially for complex rural and urban settings.

    This project is introducing an innovative way to manage 2D and 3D information, especially for spatial-focused projects, in disaster and post disaster context. HumanIT3D is collaborative, evidence-based, field-tested mobile solution enhancing humanitarian response.
