Providing insights, resources and real-world updates
Empowered by Smart Street 360 Technology in the Wake of Natural Disasters
In the recovery phase following natural disasters like bushfires and floods, the resilience of infrastructure becomes a paramount concern for local governments. Discover how RapidMap’s Smart Street 360 solution provides vital insights for Asset Maintenance crews to coordinate, collaborate & prioritise tasks.
Preparedness & Risk Mitigation
Accurate Location and Image capture technologies have been combined as an efficient tool for Asset identification and condition status. Before a fire affects your region, capture your sealed and unsealed roads including Fire Tracks using our Smart Street 360.
This way asset owners like local government, Road Authorities, Foresters, and Fire services can safely inspect transport corridors and pathways to identify vulnerable areas, coordinate road reserve vegetation management clean-ups or develop effective evacuation strategies.
The spatially accurate 360 panoramic views become a dynamic resource for disaster preparedness at your fingertips.
Condition Assessment Evidence the Before: Bushfires
In the context of impending natural disasters such as bushfires, having a comprehensive visual record of infrastructure conditions to complement your GIS becomes invaluable. The 360 Mobile Mapping solution facilitates the creation of detailed spatial panoramas, documenting the “before” condition context.
When disaster strikes, the ability to assess damage swiftly is paramount for effective response and recovery. The 360-degree capture capability becomes a powerful tool in post-disaster reconnaissance. RapidMap’s technology provides an uninterrupted view of the affected areas, offering critical insights into the damage to road assets, neighborhoods, and utility infrastructure.
Supporting Disaster Funding
In the aftermath of natural disasters, securing disaster recovery funding for reconstruction efforts is challenging. The location-based images captured by the Smart 360 Mobile Mapping system is powerful evidence for stakeholder engagement. Whether for repairing road assets, street furniture, or power, telco, water, and gas utilities, the spatially accurate data serves as a reliable foundation for justifying financial assistance.
Integrating Disaster Response with Urban Planning
Smart 360 image and mapping technology doesn’t just aid in disaster response; it integrates seamlessly with long-term urban planning via the GIS platforms in use. The data collected before and after a disaster contributes to a deeper understanding of vulnerabilities, guiding the development of resilient infrastructure that can withstand future challenges.
Relating Back to Infrastructure Management Challenges
The challenges highlighted in our previous blog regarding infrastructure management provide important context in the face of natural disasters. From the need for real-time data accuracy to the importance of comprehensive road asset network visibility, RapidMap’s Smart Street 360 addresses these challenges not just in routine management but also in helping strategy and coordinated recovery no matter the incident.
