“The primary focus of this volume is on the use of spatial technologies in urban hazard and disaster issues, concentrating on their use in four stages in the disaster management process: response, recovery, preparation, and mitigation. … the editors of this volume have provided an extremely useful addition to the literature in this area and one which deserves to be read by researchers with wider research interests in all aspects of disaster analysis.” (Gary Higgs, Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design, Vol. 38, 2011)
