Abstract
Disaster management being a key part of emergency management encompasses wide range activities. Emergency management programme are developed and implemented through the analysis and information. The majority of information is spatial and can be mapped. GIS allows emergency management to identify onset of any disaster. For this data has to be gathered organized and displayed logically to determine the size and scope of emergency management so that appropriate steps can be taken in case any disaster.
