GIS.FCU provides solutions and services concerning monitoring of debris flow, landslides, suspension solids in water, bridge safety, and ecosystem, applying advanced technology and equipment to conduct environmental monitoring. Data collected on-site is transmitted to the operation center through ADSL and satellite communication. Each monitoring station is equipped with both a local power and a backup power generator to ensure non-stop observation under any conditions. Acquired information assists the government in response to the disasters.
Furthermore, the monitoring system has been designed to adopt and follow international standards of Open Geospatial Consortium Sensor Web Enablement (OGC SWE) to exchange information between agencies and to enhance integration of various data resources. The interoperability and information integration provided by GIS.FCU has greatly improved the disaster response system and helped to achieve the ultimate goal of sharing and establishing cooperation.
The Su-Hua Landslide monitoring system uses on-site sensors and rainfall forecasts from the QPESUMS of Central Weather Bureau to provide early warnings. The system assists the Directorate General of Highways to monitor the slope and highway safety.
Observation platform for displaying live information of debris flow. Users can locate the distribution of debris flow monitoring instruments and search the real-time data received from each monitoring station in order to proceed autonomous disaster prevention during disaster response and further to minimize the loss of life and property damage.
The DWRT has established nearly 600 cloud-based water information monitoring stations, including rainfall stations, flooding monitoring stations on pavements, regional drainage water level monitoring stations, CCTVs, sewer monitoring stations, remote water gate control stations, pump monitoring stations, etc. The System can immediately deliver a big amount of water information for proceeding big data analysis and intelligent disaster information prediction.
Flooding and debris flow are the major natural disasters that cause loss and damage in Vietnam. In order to help Vietnam with developing slopeland disaster mitigation, GIS Research Center has assisted Vietnam with setting up various monitoring instruments. By integrating telecommunication technology, monitoring on-site images, rainfall, and the variation of water level, the Center greatly help enhance Vietnam’s monitoring capability on debris flow disaster.
