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 Smart Amplified Group Environment (SAGE3).

In the first and second years, LandSAGE was jointly led by Jason Leigh (PI Y1) & William Chang (senior advisor) at the Laboratory for Advanced Visualization & Applications (LAVA) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, and Jason Haga (PI Y2) at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan, to introduce over 200 researchers and decision makers in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos to the use of advanced cyber-infrastructure for disaster monitoring and mitigation. Four CyberCANOEs were deployed to the four countries.

In the third and fourth years, LandSAGE was led by Mores Prachyabrued (PI Y3&4) at the ImmerSense Laboratory at Mahidol University in Thailand, to develop an open source, data and visualization-rich "LandSAGE" decision support software enabling researchers in Southeastern Asia to collaborate over Asi@Connect’s networks on monitoring and mitigation of natural disasters using the installed CyberCANOEs. Eight CyberCANOEs were deployed to seven organizations in the region to increase their visualization capacities and the utilization of Asi@Connect's networks. LandSAGE-related trainings and promotions were provided to over 500 participants in 12 different countries.

Participating Institutions include: 

National University of Laos

Mekong River Commission Secretariat in Laos

Institute of Technology of Cambodia

FIMO Center at Vietnam National University

Universitas YARSI in Indonesia

Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI) in the Philippines

Walailak and Thammasat Universities in Thailand

LandSAGE 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.
