Nation-wide asset mapping for Sweden (2021-07-06)

Collection: CEMS-RRM : CEMS Risk and Recovery Mapping 


Activation date: 2021-07-06
Event type: Other

Activation reason:

BEAM (Basic European Assets Map) provides a spatial data package for the estimation and comparison of real and potential damages caused by natural disasters. BEAM is based on spatial and statistical data available throughout Europe (Corine Land Cover, Urban Atlas) and enriched by national statistics information. The data model follows an approach, that can be applied across Europe, and is scalable from local to regional and national analysis. Data are stored as assets in monetary values per area unit (€/m²). The complete BEAM information comprises different asset layers representing assets for various economic sectors, enabling the application of hazard specific damage (vulnerability) functions on individual BEAM layers. BEAM is composed of two major components: the asset data derived from the statistics and the land use and land cover data associated with them.The objective of the EMSN098 activation is the production of the BEAM dataset for the country of Sweden based on the most up-to-date asset layers and statistics available.Proposed solution and resultsCollection and preparation of geospatial input layers: LULC of Urban Atlas and Corine Land Cover, accompanied by data from the National Land Cover Database of Sweden and OpenStreetMapCollection and preparation of socio-economic data covering information on e.g. population, housing, vehicles, industry, services & trade and agriculture from EUROSTAT and the national statistics agency of SwedenDerivation of asset layersCalculation of the normalized BEAM values BEAM example: Greater Stockholm area (Detail from the Stockholm County Map)General concept of BEAM asset and their use in risk assessment
