David Lallemant, an engineer working in Haiti with the World Bank Group, talked about ongoing challenges facing the disaster-response effort following the earthquake that struck Port-au-Prince earlier this year. The Information Products Laboratory for Emergency Response in the Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science hosted Lallemant’s visit to RIT as the keynote speaker at its annual workshop Nov. 12. Imagery collected from the disaster by RIT, and made freely available on the Internet, has led to a flood of innovative information products. Getting those products to the right decision makers is part of the challenge facing engineers and scientists working in remote-damage analysis, Lallemant says.
