Dr. Budhendra Bhaduri is a Cor-
porate Research Fellow (ORNL)
and leads the Geographic Infor-
mation Science and Technology
(GIST) group at Oak Ridge Na-
tional Laboratory. He is a
founding member of the U.S. De-
partment of Energy’s Geospatial
Sciences Steering Committee.
His research interests and expe-
rience include novel implemen-
tation of geospatial science and
technology in sustainable devel-
opment research, including pop-
ulation dynamics, urbanization
and watershed impacts, energy
resource assessment, and di-
saster management. He is a principal member of the LandScan
global population modeling programs at ORNL. He received the
2010 Homeland Security award for emergency preparedness and
response from Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation. In
2009, he was appointed to the Mapping Science Committee of the
National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council. He is
also serving on the Geographic Information Science and Applica-
tions and on a Strategic Highway Research Program, Expert Task
Group of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National
Academies. Dr. Bhaduri is actively involved with academic institu-
tions for scientific collaborations and student engagement for re-
search in geospatial science. He is a recipient of the Department
of Energy’s Outstanding Mentor Award for his dedicated service
to the department for developing future workforce for the nation.

General Session 2
Towards a Geospatial Knowledge
Discovery Framework for Disaster
Budhendra Bhaduri,
Corporate Research Fellow, Oak Ridge
National Laboratory
, United States
The progressive cyber and data infrastructures have enabled the
development of novel decision support frameworks for the dis-
aster preparedness and response community of practice. This
presentation will describe ongoing development of a computa-
tionally intensive and efficient geospatial modeling and analysis
framework that allows near real time processing and integration
of remotely sensed data, derivation and delivery of useful data
derivatives, and spatio-temporal modeling and simulations using
capability computing. Drawing from our experience in supporting
national and international disaster management efforts for recent
natural disasters, the practical limitations of traditional disaster
decision support structure and criticality of geospatial computing
will also be highlighted.
