Abstract: The study examines the current application of geospatial information technologies and highlights the challenges of and constraints on GIScience research for emergency management that are particularly pertinent to Southeast Asia. Based on the generic GIScience research priorities noted by the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science, four topics most relevant to Southeast Asia are examined and discussed, including issues relating to use of spatial data, advancement and adoption of technology, dynamic representation of geographic processes, and public participation in emergency management. In-depth consideration of these can contribute to more appropriate and effective uses of geospatial information technology in Southeast Asia for emergency management purpose. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
