In this paper the design and implementation of a prototype viewer system for the RoboCup-Rescue framework (Version 0) is described. We discuss the requirements for the visualization of disaster information and propose a workflow model for the disaster mitigation process. A prototype of disaster information system has been built, based on this model, and here we discuss the system from the viewpoint of information visualizations.
