On December 7th 2010 in the Ministry of Transport, Information Technology and Communications, Executive Agency Electronic Communication Networks and Information Systems, was held meeting with the team of Mr. Vassil Grancharov, Director of Information and Communication Systems Directorate and representatives of ReSAC on the project SAFER Services and Applications for Emergency Response, financed by the European Communitys Seventh Framework Programme. The SAFER project tests and validates the GMES Emergency and Response Core Service. The SAFER project started in December 2008 and has 3 years lifetime.

ReSAC, as a SAFER partner, presented results from Plain flood risk management WP. Discussed was progress of Assets mapping WP and creation of database for water bodies in Bulgaria.

Past flood event maps for selected sites along Danube River were shown. Extent of the flood and risk analysis, based on land cover was performed. ReSAC demonstrated results from flood hazards mapping with probability of occurrence once every 100 and 1000 years. For the case study was chosen Iskar River within Sofia municipality. The next step is creation of such maps for the other test site city of Ruse. The maps prepared are in accordance with the requirements of the Directive on flood risk management. All the maps were provided to the Executive Agency Electronic Communication Networks and Information Systems.

Database for water bodies in Bulgaria was presented. There was discussion about creation of the data, metadata population, and the main requirements in that field.

Discussed were issues related to the standards for spatial data, in accordance with INSPIRE directive of European Commission and Bulgarian law.

Thematic map presenting past flood event along Iskar River city of Novi Iskar, from 12.08.2005, with risk analysis based on land cover, is now available HERE.

LIDAR

ReSAC was attended in European LiDAR Mapping Forum (ELMF) in The Hague, Netherlands, between November 30th and December 1st. The ELMF was about airborne, bathymetric and terrestrial LiDAR, and its use in a field of transport, urban modeling, coastal zone mapping, asset management and GIS application. Alongside there is an associated international exhibition for system and components, and service companies.
The meeting was attracted 530 attendees from 46 countries and 50 exhibiting companies.

In the conference were covered topics about Airborne and Terrestrial LiDAR, Mobile mapping, Bathymetric, and Coastal LiDAR. There were presented latest technologies in Terrestrial laser scanner in a field of visualization, modeling and monitoring of manmade structures. In a field of Mobile Mapping were discussed applications about road, railway and boat-mounted LiDAR. Mobile laser scanning produces highly accurate 3D point data in between a few hours. This data can be used for analytical, documenting and planning purposes of the road infrastructure. There were examined new applications in Bathymetric and Coastal LiDAR for creation of accurate terrain model, and high resolution hydrographic data for inland waters and shallow zone.

Flood in Bulgaria

Since 25-26 of July, heavy rainfalls have caused extensive floodings in Bulgaria. The floods affected especially the Pazardzhik district in central southern Bulgaria.

The main road between Pazardhzik and Plovdiv as well as the highway between Sofia and Plovidiv have been flooded. Further roads and houses in a number of towns and villages in the region have been affected or are threatened by water.

ZKI provides Reference and Flood Maps in the framework of the GMES Emergency Response project SAFER with funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme. ReSAC (partner in SAFER) supported ZKI with reference topographic information. In the next couple of weeks ReSAC will produce and deliver to Bulgarian Civil Protection, several thematic maps related with flood risk information.

The maps are available at:
