The application of spatio-temporal data and modeling techniques to characterize the variability of hazard risk, vulnerability, and impacts is increasingly important in the pursuit of building resilient communities and infrastructures. This session includes papers that discuss the use of spatio-temporal data, geospatial techniques, and visualization methods to understand risk and impacts for hazard planning and response.
