This presentation will detail the collection, management, usefulness, and accessibility of satellite data in relation to natural disasters. By examining natural disasters and events with collected satellite data, our research hopes to highlight the most effective way to not only collect data about events, but most effective use the data. This usefulness is measured by hardware accuracy, time of collection, accessibility to the researcher, and ease of use. Our research challenges the current model of obtaining satellite information, and aims to prove that tracking, managing, and disseminating satellite information is one of the most important tools for responding agencies after an event has occurred. We believe that changing the current model of satellite data collection can only serve to strengthen responding agencies, and potentially save lives
