Natural disasters – such as hurricanes, avalanches, earthquakes, tornadoes, wildfires, and cyclones – are likely increasing in numbers due to climate change. These events bring with them an endless amount of humanitarian, public health, environmental and infrastructural problems. Recent years have been overtaken by some of these horrid, unavoidable disasters which have caused endless damage on property and human lives. The objective of this video-aided iPad application for disaster information is to provide rich semantics and crucial information often not included in concise situation reports. This project will pay high emphasis on video data since it contains image frames, audio and motions, which better assist in the understanding and visualization of the text-based situation descriptions. Mobile devices will also be a major method used within this system since people can capture and share the most current situation-relevant data as fast as possible if a disaster were to occur. This enables people to quickly develop a plan in advance instead of being trapped and hopeless. This project is significant and innovative due to all of the front-end and back-end optimizations and the enhanced web-based system that could handle the video detection task by integrating with any machine-learning framework using standardized outputs at the back-end. The goal of this project is to impact the field and society by hopefully lessening the damage of property and human beings by the wrath of disasters and implementing a more effective disaster integration system.
