Abstract: This paper highlights the use of remote sensing technologies in disaster management. Impact of natural disasters on life, property and ability to predict them would be one of the main contribution of remote sensing technology. Involving remote sensing with GIS and web technology makes it an extremely powerful tool to identify indicators of potential disasters. Information sharing through Internet reduces data acquisition time and thus providing efficient way to carry out real time disaster predictions (Earthquake, Tsunamis etc.). Changing land use and assessment of its impact on the system in general within reasonable time frame and with greater degree of accuracy becomes possible with new technology.
