This paper describes the evolution of recent work on using crowdsourced analysis of remote sensing imagery, particularly high-resolution aerial imagery, to provide rapid, reliable assessments of damage caused by earthquakes and potentially other disasters. The initial effort examined online imagery taken after the 2008 Wenchuan, China, earthquake. A more(More)
The Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC) is in charge since 1998 of collecting seismological parametric data recorded by local institutes of the Euro-Mediterranean region in order to improve data availability for the seismological community and to rapidly produce a comprehensive bulletin for the region. The goals are to reproduce the seismicity as(More)
This paper presents the strategy and operational tools developed and implemented at the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) to detect and diagnose the impact of global earthquakes within minutes by combining « flashsourcing » (real time monitoring of website traffic) with social media monitoring and crowdsourcing. This approach serves both the(More)
been operating Real Time Earthquake Information services for the public and the scientific community. These services aim at providing fast and reliable information on the seismicity of the Euro-Mediterranean region and on significant earthquakes worldwide. They are based on parametric data rapidly provided by 66 seismological networks, automatically merged(More)
