Most research on tropical cyclone disaster management has been carried out at the regional level without validation of results. Climate change scenarios have to be taken into account in future cyclone risk mapping and modelling.

This paper systematically reviewed studies of on-ground cyclone disaster management using remote sensing and spatial analysis in the context of response, recovery, prevention/reduction and preparedness in order to find out key knowledge gaps for future work. Most of the studies were concentrated in Asia (55%) and North and Central America (40%). Extensive use of remote sensing and spatial analysis started after 2004 and largely focused on the preparedness (34%) and prevention and reduction (32%) phases.
