The term "disaster management" comprises both natural and man-made disasters. Highly pervaded with various types of sensors, our environment generates large amounts of data. Thus, big data applications in the field of disaster management should adopt a modular view, going from a component to nation scale. Current research trends mainly aim at integrating component, building, neighborhood and city levels, neglecting the region level for managing disasters. Current research on big data mainly

This paper aims presenting a systematic literature review on the applications of big data in disaster management. The paper will first presents the visual definition of disaster management and describes big data; it will then illustrate the findings and gives future recommendations after a systematic literature review.
