Abstract

In the paper we study the application of Volunteer Geographic Information to disaster risk management in the novel scope of risk assessment. We compare flood risk assessment profiles
produced using data collected by OpenStreetMap (OSM) against official geodata produced by local governments in two cities of Veneto, Italy. We have found that OSM data present several
advantages and have a great potential for improvement, suggesting that OSM should be integrated in future risk assessment processes.
