Wind profilers Other synoptic data or weather instruments, including Earth Simulator which is used to model climate and weather conditions.
In Africa, flood is one of the major concerns of farmers. The International Water Management Institute launched the mobile services for flood management, specifically in East Sudan. These mobile services are considered as a next-generation ICT for weather and water information.
The tool converts complex satellite sensor information to simple text messages which are sent to farmers informing them about the optimum use of flood water for crop production. The text messages would also warn the farmers about the flood events which would help them prepare their fields and advise on how to mitigate flood damage in estimating the risk of future flood events.
In times of calamities, information and communication technology is needed for disaster management.
Various organisations, government agencies and small and large-scale research projects have been exploring the use of ICT for relief operations, providing early warnings and monitoring extreme weather events. NetHope is another global organization which contributes disaster management and awareness through information technology.
In when Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, the CDAC network utilized different technologies to coordinate and communicate efforts between the affected communities and the different network's volunteer organizations. CDAC saw the value of communication in responding to the disaster.
They emphasized getting accurate and timely information as being crucial to saving lives. One of the organizations and tools that they tapped was the Digital Humanitarian Network. The Digital Humanitarian Network is a group of organizations with various tools that contribute to crisis mapping.
These tools were used to manage information that are received about the disaster. The tools they use allow them to monitor media—including social media, create live crisis maps, analyze the data they have, etc. The website collates information regarding earthquake preparedness.
This was created in response to a predicted earthquake, expected to hit Metro Manila with a 7. According to DOST, NOAH's mission is to undertake disaster science research and development, advance the use of cutting edge technologies, and recommend innovative information services in government's disaster prevention and mitigation efforts.
Through the use of science and technology and in partnership with the academe and other stakeholders, the DOST through Project NOAH is taking a multi-disciplinary approach in developing systems, tools, and other technologies that could be operationalized by government to help prevent and mitigate disasters.
OpenRDI aims to minimize the effect of disaster in developing countries by encouraging them to open their disaster risk data. GIS technologies such as satellite imagerythematic maps, and geospatial data play a big part in disaster risk management.
One example is the HaitiDatawhere maps of Haiti containing layers of geospatial data earthquake intensity, flooding likelihood, landslide and tsunami hazards, overall damage, etc.communication processes can either be one-way or two-way.
Effect of Technology on Communication Summary: this is a 6-page paper on the effects of technology and the WWW on culture, human and organizational values and communication. Introduction Have computers changed the life of the average man like electricity did centuries ago? Technology has changed the work environment dramatically including how we communicate we workers and consumers. There are both positive and negative effects to technology advances in the workplace. Information and communication technology (ICT) which includes radio, television and newer digital technology such as computers and the internet, are potentially powerful tools for extending educational opportunities, formal and non-.
In one-way communication the information is disseminated to the receiver who does not have the opportunity to respond immediately. Examples of this include radio and television. Two-way communication allows for feedback between the sender and the receiver of information.
Technology can have positive and negative impact on social interactions This is an excerpt from Dimensions of Leisure for Life by Human Kinetics. May 23, · Information and communication technologies (ICTs) embody all digital technologies that support the electronic capture, storage, processing, and exchange of information in order to promote health, prevent illness, treat disease, manage chronic illness, and so on [1, 2].
Proponents of ICT4D proposed four arguments focused on: first, ICT’s role to national and global advancements; second, information and communication technology as an integral part of economic development; third, it can and it should influence to end exploitive regimes and dismantle asymmetrical structures; lastly, it is argued that communication .
A third question regarding the impacts of technology on face-to-face communication asked students whether they noticed quality degradation in conversation amongst the presence of technology. Eighty-nine percent of respondents believed there was a degradation, .
Technology has changed the work environment dramatically including how we communicate we workers and consumers. There are both positive and negative effects to technology advances in the workplace.
