2nd Workshop of the Geohazards Community of Practice of GEO
May 6, 2011, Antalya, Turkey

Workshop Rationale: During the January 2010 Workshop of the GHCP, a Road Map was drafted aiming at Earth observation support for the risk management cycle as it relates to geohazards (see the Workshop Page for more information and the Road Map). The Road Map has been introduced to the GEO Science and Technology Committee (STC) and the GEO User Interface Committee (UIC) and presented at a number of relevant scientific conferences.

Workshop Goals:The 2nd Workshop of the GHCP will focus on the acceptance of the Road Map and the discussion of steps towards the implementation of the Road Map. This workshop will take place on May 6, 2011 in Antalya, Turkey, in co-location with the Gi4DM-2011 conference.

Prior to the workshop, a revision of the draft Road Map based on feedback from the GHCP and an iteration of the Road Map with the GEO Committees will further develop the draft.

Participation: All persons interested in the work of the GHCP are invited to participate both in the workshop and in the pre-workshop iteration of the draft Road Map.
