Abstract
    The overall goal of this study is to strengthen the quality, accuracy, and completeness of disaster data in Europe. As part of the MICRODIS project, the study analyses the impact of recent disasters on human populations, using both statistical and spatial data through generated geocoded maps of impact areas. It is intended to serve as a preliminary and descriptive investigation to reveal certain possibilities and serve as the basis for further research.
