UN-SPIDER Updates August 2020

Dear readers,

We're glad to share with you the August 2020 UN-SPIDER Monthly Updates, and would like to make you aware of a new Recommended Practice on disaster preparedness using free software extensions. The Recommended Practice explains how remote sensing data about recurring floods, information about infrastructure and socio-economic data can be integrated using free and open source software to support prevention and preparedness efforts. It makes use, among others, of the InaSAFE plug-in for the desktop GIS software QGIS, and can be accessed on the UN-SPIDER Knowledge Portal.

Enjoy the read!
