Rescue plans for crisis situations such as natural or made disasters are mostly presented in a textual format to the relevant authority. Assessing the quality of a rescue plan requires analyzing different perspectives, such as plan complexity, resources costs, service time, allocation strategy and organization efficiency. Unfortunately, textual rescue plans lack a formal structure to ease the reading and navigation through the document. To address this problem we are composing tailored visualizations, each visualization representing a particular perspective. We provide a domain specific language to describe domain specific visualizations of processes. We validate our approach using static and dynamic analysis of the Ho Chi Minh city rescue plan in case of a tsunami. Our approach provides recommendations that are useful for the authority to improve the original rescue plan.
