LandSAGE- a project to provide decision support for monitoring and mitigation of natural disasters (landslides, mudflows, and floods) in Southeastern Asia using Cyber-enabled Collaboration, Analysis, Navigation and Observation Environments (CyberCANOEs) driven by the Scalable Amplified Group Environment (SAGE2).
This project is jointly led by Jason Leigh & William Chang at the Laboratory for Advanced Visualization & Applications at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, and Jason Haga at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan, to provide training for researchers and decision makers in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos on the use of advanced cyber-infrastructure for disaster monitoring and mitigation.
Participating Institutions include:
National University of Laos
Walailak University, Mahidol University, Thammasat University- Thailand
FIMO Center/University of Engineering and Technology- Vietnam
National University, Institute of Technology of Cambodia.
This project is funded by TEIN (Trans-Eurasia Information Network), a high speed network for research and education which connects 20 countries in Asia and 34 countries in Europe. This network is actively being used for international joint researches in cutting-edge areas, including information telecommunications and bioengineering.
