Among the many kinds of natural and man-made disasters, earthquakes dominate with regard to their impact on the urban built environment (socially and economically). For any kind of disaster, there is a five-phases lifecycle (i.e., response, recovery, mitigation, prevention, preparedness) known as Emergency Management and Disaster (Crisis) Risk Management Cycle (DRMC). A fundamentally substantial tool to cover and support DRMC is GIS (Geographical Information Systems), especially Web-GIS. In this paper, several new technologies that are already actively involved (or indicated "ready" to engage) in the field of GIS are summarized. A re-consideration of the GIS-status in relation with such technologies (especially geosensors, wireless sensor networks and Structural Health Monitoring techniques) is suggested. The results of such a re-consideration will surely lead to a wide upgrade regarding the rules and specifications related to earthquake-disasters, and the effectiveness of GIS in the emergency management of earthquakes as well.
