In the last few years, new GPS methods have been developed with higher productivity and good theoretical precision. The main objective of this paper is to ascertain the performance of GPS in Disaster Management. The main purpose of the course is to enhance the capabilities of professionals and technical staff working in disaster risk management by providing them with understanding of the use of GPS in disaster risk management. When infrastructure is wiped out after a disaster such as the recent Indian Ocean Tsunami, providing relief efforts effectively and efficiently can prove to be a challenge. For instance, the absence of a functioning communications infrastructure hampers effective disaster management precisely at the time when it is needed the most. Among the new built-in capabilities added include the ability to geographically track via GPS available resources in real time and enabling the creation of mini private networks that allow such resources to be deployed in a manner which maximizes efficiency and effectiveness and minimizes duplication. This paper also capture as how the existing technologies like GIS, RS, GPS, Data Information Exchange, Data Mining, Early Warning System and Knowledge Management etc. help in disaster management. Finally, it concludes that the decision-makers should put appropriate steps to work closely with scientists for implementation of the required policies. Sometimes, disasters have no boundaries; therefore, international collaboration and advancement of technology usage should be the first step.
