GDIN Products

What is a GDIN Product? Those who manage programs and projects like things to be concrete, so when touting a project, we tout our successes. Lots of maps have been generated through the GDIN partnership and can be viewed from the links below. We call them GDIN products because we either asked for them to be made, or because our partners generated them as a result of the relationship and said we should call them a GDIN map or image. 

GDIN's primary value is to try to facilitate linkage between users and providers, to help disaster managers find sources of information more effectively than now, and when needed, to facilitate the creation of unique products, such we did in in India during the floods in 2007 or in Turkey. We propose doing that mainly through Working Groups (which provide expert advise, develop reports, make recommendations, etc), a Virtual Operations Center and through user-provider databases and portals on the Web. Those are the true GDIN products.

The following page indexes specific unique sample GIS products coordinated by GDIN or posted on our web site at the request of various partners. For the most part, all GDIN GIS products are also shared with ReliefWeb.

Ukraine, Zakarpatia: Flood events in Zakarpatia are reported to be as severe as 98/99 and follow the same pattern of mud slides and flooding. Scenario is a gradual warm up with a significant rain event that impacts the snow cover. Basically, the top meter or so of earth slides over the lower portion that remains frozen. I know that there are no flood gauges in the area and that Ukraine has asked the Hungarians for helicopter support. GDIN has reached out to its partners; but have not provided products; rather has pointed to efforts by others, in particular ReliefWeb, which has extensive reporting on the crisis.
