"Disasters and emergency situations are a common risk. All of us should have access to information about potential future distress events and those that already happened."
International Disaster and Information Monitoring Centre (IDEMC) was founded in 2007. Our aim is to provide up-to-date, so called „rapid information” about all emergency situations and disasters all around the globe. Currently we do not have a central office but being an internet based data provider we don’t really need one. We use cloud technology to disperse our resources to various locations. This way, our operation cannot be disturbed by either political or technical issues. IDEMC uses both automated and human data processing to monitor relevant events about distress situations and disasters 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our automated systems collect, analyse and publish event information without any human intervention.
Our operators on duty also analyse and publish incoming information. They categorize events whether they are natural disasters or human caused events, then further categorize them and finally, they create a quick risk analysis based on previous experiences. It is also important to find the geographical location of all events with maximum possible precision. Thanks to the human component, all digested events come from a highly reliable source. The overall precision of emergency and disaster data in our databases reach as high as 90 to 95 percent.
Our organization is non-profit, we spend most of our service incomes and donations on maintenance and on further development of our technology. We do our best to remain independent from any political or economical power. Our philosophy is that this information should be available to anyone, regardless of race, gender, religious or political orientation.
Our experience of more then 10 years help us give high quality service to our customers and partners.
