Summary of "Research on the application of mobile phone location signal data in earthquake emergency work: A case study of Jiuzhaigou earthquake."

After an earthquake, the important task of emergency rescue work is to minimize casualties, but due to the suddenness of earthquake disasters, it is difficult to obtain enough disaster information immediately, especially personnel distribution and movement information. The traditional methods of obtaining disaster data are through reports from the disaster area or field investigations by the emergency rescue team; this work lags, and its efficiency is low. This paper analyzes the feasibility of using mobile phone location signal data in earthquake emergency rescue work in several respects, such as quantity, location, change rate, and epicentral distance. The results show that mobile phone location signal data can quickly obtain the situation of personnel distribution and quantity after an earthquake, and we find the change rate, distance, etc., can determine the approximate range of the earthquake impact field. Through the data distribution in different time periods, the movement of personnel after the earthquake can be obtained. Based on several situations, we can determine the basic situation of the disaster-stricken areas in times after the earthquake, especially the personnel relevant to the situation, and these data can provide a scientific basis for emergency rescue decision making.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Information application based on a variety of coding methods to minimize the amount of data to be stored, retrieved, or transmitted. Data compression can be applied to various forms of data, such as images and signals. It is used to reduce costs and increase efficiency in the maintenance of large volumes of data.

Signal and data processing method that uses decomposition of wavelets to approximate, estimate, or compress signals with finite time and frequency domains. It represents a signal or data in terms of a fast decaying wavelet series from the original prototype wavelet, called the mother wavelet. This mathematical algorithm has been adopted widely in biomedical disciplines for data and signal processing in noise removal and audio/image compression (e.g., EEG and MRI).

The comparison of the quantity of meaningful data to the irrelevant or incorrect data.

Reproduction of data in a new location or other destination, leaving the source data unchanged, although the physical form of the result may differ from that of the source.

Observation and aquisition of physical data from a distance by viewing and making measurements from a distance or receiving transmitted data from observations made at distant location.
