The involvement of key users and stakeholders is vital for the success of LAMPRE. The Stakeholder User Group (SUG) is established with two main objectives:
The Stakeholder User Group (SUG) will comprise organisations in Europe and worldwide, including CPAs, technical and geological surveys, space agencies, image and service providers, including core and downstream services.
The SUG will be responsible for providing a source of strategic guidance of products development, user take-up and sustainability of products and tools. The SUG has the mandate of advising on products and services specifications during their development, thus to give a significant contribution on take-up assessment.
The SUG will also advise on the general framework, the user interface, and on governance aspects related to the proposed prototype service. A specific task of the project (WP8) consists in evaluating the economic and technologic sustainability of the prototype service, contributing to deciding on appropriate take-up activities.
The research and development activities executed in LAMPRE will be driven by clearly defined user needs and specifications. An explicit task of the SUG will be to determine the suitability of the user needs and specifications proposed in a wider physiographic, geographical and organizational context, to provide feedback, and to suggest correction actions, if necessary.
A task of LAMPRE is to provide procedures for improved image processing, and criteria for evaluating the quality of landslide inventory maps, and landslide susceptibility models and zonations. With regard to this, another task of the SUG will be to examine the rationale for the proposed procedures and criteria, and to evaluate their applicability in different contexts, contributing to enhancing operational capacities of different organizations, and at different scales.
Individual members of the SUG, and their organisations –where applicable – will be asked to contribute to the dissemination of the project results by providing addresses of additional potentially interested users in their respective countries for sending advertising materials and to link the LAMPRE website to their Institutional or personal web-sites.
7-12 April 2013, Vienna, Austria - LAMPRE partners attended the European Geosciences Union Conference presenting preliminary activities of the LAMPRE project.
10-12 March 2013 - Rome, Italy - The LAMPRE kick off meeting will be hold at Dipartimento della Protezione Civile (DPC), one of the project partners, involving the LAMPRE Consortium to start the project activities and define a detailed plan for the first year. The Project Officer of the Research Executive Agency, Florence Béroud will attend the KOM.
Advancing the understanding of the vulnerability to landslides of different types of elements at risk. This will include:
Including geo-processing SW tools, for improved landslide detection and mapping exploiting EO data, and for landslide susceptibility and vulnerability modelling. Statistically based procedures for the accurate detection of event landslides in different physiographic settings will be designed, and tested. Advanced methods based on stereoscopic and pseudo-stereoscopic satellite images for the detection of subtle terrain and land cover changes indicative of slope failures will be explored. This will allow for future automatic recognition of landslides from 3D imagery. Flexible geo-processing SW tools for landslide susceptibility assessment at different geographical scales and adopting different terrain mapping units will be developed, tested and deployed.
Useful for the vulnerability and impact assessment of landslides including:
For landslide mapping, landslide susceptibility modelling and zonations, and for landslide vulnerability and impact assessments.
Supporting decision making for landslide mitigation and preparedness, and for effective post-event recovery and reconstruction activities.
The FP7 LAMPRE project proposes to execute innovative research and technological developments to increase GMES limited operational capacity to cope with triggered landslide events and their consequences, in Europe and elsewhere.
