    Abstract

    The paper presents an in
    ternational multi-disci-
    plinary initiative, a Namibia SensorWeb Pilot Project, that was
    created as a testbed for evaluati
    ng and prototyping key technolo-
    gies for rapid acquisition and d
    istribution of data products for
    decision support systems to monitor
    fl
    oods. Those key technologies
    include SensorWebs, Grids and Computation Clouds. This pilot
    project aims at developin
    g an operational trans-boundary
    fl
    ood
    management decision support s
    ystem for the Southern African
    region to provide useful
    fl
    ood and water-borne disease forecasting
    tools for local decisi
    on makers. This effort in
    tegrates space-based
    and ground sensor data along with higher level geospatial data
    products to enable risk assessment and ultimately risk maps
    related to
    fl
    ood di
    saster management and water-related disease
    management. We present an overall architecture of the Pilot
    along with components and servic
    es being developed. Addition-
    ally, case-stu
    dies and results achieved so far are discussed. The
    presented work is being carried out within GEO 2009–2011 Work
    Plan as CEOS WGISS contribution.
