The SIMULATOR-ADS project (Integrated modulare system for risk management and prevention – snriched with satellite data) is an initiative carried out under the Regional Operational Program 2014-2020, “INVESTMENTS IN FAVOR OF GROWTH AND EMPLOYMENT ”(co-financed by FESR) which is part of the PRIORITY AXIS I – STRENGTHENING RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND INNOVATION, Action I.1.b.1.3 – Support for collaborative R&S activities for the development of new sustainable technologies, new products and services “Call for LINEA R&S PER AGGREGAZIONI”.
The project was developed with the aim of supporting Local Administrators or Civil Protection Operators in the phases of forecasting, prevention and response to natural events (hydraulic / hydrogeological risk, forest fire / interface risk, seismic risk) or anthropic (chemical / industrial risk), through a decision support system and a WebGIS powered by heterogeneous sources, including satellite images (flooded areas and burned areas), institutional and modelled scenarios, weather forecasts, territorial sensors. SIMULATOR-ADS led to the creation of two products:
1) an innovative platform to support local authorities for monitoring and real-time risk management actions;
2) an app that can be used by Civil Protection operators and citizens to send reports to the platform.
The platform is ready to contribute to the E015 digital ecosystem.
