Climate Change Vulnerability Index System

March 13, 2015 — To handle climate changes and reduce the loss of lives and properties, Taiwan government establishes a SuperGIS-powered platform, to provide latest information to support decision making.

To address climate changes and reduce disaster damages of lives and properties, the Institute of Transportation in Executive Yuan, Taiwan intended to establish a system that could be the backbone of decision making reference. The system should be able to provide the latest information to support decision making while emergencies happen.

SuperGIS Desktop, the feature-rich mapping software developed by Supergeo, is selected to develop the Climate Change Vulnerability Index System. The platform allows managers to display, edit, visualize and analyze various geospatial data, so that the huge processed information could be provided to other sectors for responding environment changes.

Four different modules are built for multiple uses:

1. Assessment and Adaption

By selecting distinct indices like Year Layer and Highway-Railway Layer, users can display, print out, and export the specified map data and query the required indices.

2. Reference Maps

Diverse reference maps, such as Transportation System Map, Highway and Railway Construction Map, Transportation Requirement Map, can be overlaid according to specific requirements.

3. Basemaps

Users can select among various thematic basemaps, like Districts Map, Society and Economy Map, Topographic Map, Environmentally Sensitive Area, Urban Plan Map, etc.

4. Extension for Applications

The system helps users to customize the advanced map and import the results of climate change researches by highway and railway administrative departments.

Combing diverse huge geospatial data, the SuperGIS-powered Climate Change Vulnerability Index System is able to offer decision makers a platform with abundant resources, so that the officials can deploy human resource and supply when extreme climate change occurs.
