The potential of aerial platforms in a `rapid? emergency response context
Abstract: 

This report reflects on the potential use of aerial platforms in rapid emergency response contexts, typically following major disaster and crisis events. In Europe, a coordinated effort to provide mapping services to support emergency response operations after such events is part of the Copernicus programme, which facilitates the fast provision of thematic post-event map products based on satellite imagery. Increasingly imagery derived from aerial platforms are providing operational capacities that render them attractive for consideration to bolster under certain conditions satellite-based services in support to emergency response operations.
