Large-scale population displacements have ever increased the need for more effective humanitarian assistance. Humanitarian organizations require up-to-date reliable information about the situation on-site. Field-based surveys are often limited in crisis situations due to time or accessibility constraints. Geospatial and Earth observation (EO) technologies have increasingly become popular in the humanitarian community. An EO-based information service was set up for Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) which provides dedicated geospatial information products in support of their operations. The core of the service portfolio is population monitoring using dwelling extraction from (multi-temporal) very high-resolution (VHR) satellite imagery. The service is mainly requested for refugee and IDP (internally displaced people) camps. Additional services on environmental resources, including groundwater, are provided on demand. As of mid-2017, over 350 maps at 60 locations in over 20 countries have been produced.

Land use/land cover (LULC) information is one of the most important spatial input for environmental modelling and a crucial indicator to identify and quantify natural and socioeconomic impacts triggered by LULC changes. Such impacts are related to glacier, snow cover, and permafrost melting, the forming of GLOFs, erosion by land sides, discharge and sediment transport dynamics of alpine rivers, and the socioeconomic regional urban and rural development to name some of them.

This chapter focuses on segmentation of remotely sensed image data and object-based image analysis. It discusses the differences between pixel-based and object-based image analysis; the potential of the object-based approach; and, the application of eCognition software for performing image segmentation and classification at different levels of detail.

Following a request from the DG RELEX in April 2008 for support in the planning of the EU mission to Darfur, the GMES-LIMES project partners in the Humanitarian Relief & Reconstruction cluster combined their expertise to contribute their support through the provision of satellite imagery based maps and information. Detailed damage assessment maps were produced for three villages that had been burnt down by militias early in 2008. Analyses were also carried out on the evolution of two large IDP camps, focussing on the population growth and densities within both the camps and the surrounding villages. In addition, rapid mapping techniques adapted to the complex humanitarian situation were applied in analysing the effects of militia raids on the three villages in West Darfur and for monitoring the evolution of the IDP camps between 2002 and 2008. The impact of the camps on the surrounding environment was also analysed using medium-resolution MODIS time series data (2000—2008).
