Due to the increasing occurrence of natural disasters, humanitarian emergency situations and civil endangerment, there is a growing need for timely information on rapidly evolving events. Satellite imagery can provide valuable information in emergency, crisis or disaster situation. Having recognized this need, an increasing number of space agencies are developing and operating infrastructures and services to provide earth observation resources to provide information in case on emergencies. In this context, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) has established and operates a user service which is called "Center for Satellite Based Crisis Information" (ZKI) for linking its comprehensive operational remote sensing data handling and analysis capacities with national and inter¬national civil protection and humanitarian relief actors as well as with political decision makers. The Indonesian National Institute of Aeronautics and Space of Indonesia (LAPAN) also has established relevant capabilities to provide information derived from earth observation satellites in case of emergencies through its “Remotely-Sensed Information System for Natural Disaster Mitigation” (SIMBA).
