Abstract

Hurricane Sandy, the worst storm of its type hitting the state of New Jersey and the New York City in generations, has caused devastating damages to the region's infrastructure, properties, and business. A variety of geospatial information acquisition technologies have been used after the landing of Hurricane Sandy to support critical decision makings related to search and rescue, damage assessment, environmental risk analysis, debris removal, and rebuilding processes. This paper described the first large-scale application of mobile terrestrial laser scanning technology in post-hurricane situations for supporting disaster recovery operations in the United States. Several innovative data analysis approaches for supporting damage assessment and flood resilience analysis are presented in the paper. Opportunities and challenges in using mobile terrestrial laser scanning to support post-disaster recovery operations are discussed to highlight future research directions.
