India: The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) of India has signed an agreement with National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) to leverage geospatial technology for disaster management. The partnership would allow NDRF to access the technical databases of NRSC and the Indian Space Research Organisation. NDRF chief chief O P Singh says, “We will be able to obtain space data during disasters for effective use at the field-level, including maps and reports. Such information would give us the vital ‘third eye’ to prepare and send fully equipped teams to initiate quick relief and rescue operations.”
