Short description of the solution. Technical details if relevant. Keywords.

The algorithm is under development in its early stages. Image acquisition and data sharing through drone is nowadays a usual task. The aim of our project is to acquire pre- and post-earthquake images of an area, to compare them and evaluate the damage grade in building level or detect changes in the landscape for possible landslide phenomena. Drones could fly fast, take the image and sent it back to a command and control center. Besides, the simple image, we want to evaluate the damage grade due to ground shaking so first responders can compare it with other data and be better prepared. Drones and GIS is the heart behind the philosophy of this algorithm. Inputs and outputs of the algorithm will be on the most usual file formats for further editing.

Keywords: GIS, Drones, damage grade, landslides, image analysis, machine learning, deep learning
