Abstract

Crisis response and management involve the collaboration of many people. To perform and coordinate their activities, they must rely on detailed and accurate information about the crisis, the environment, and many more factors. To ensure collaboration of emergency services and high-quality care for victims, the ability to supply dynamic and contextually correlated information is necessary. However, current approaches to construct globally consistent views of crises suffer from problems identified in [60]: (a) the setting of events is constantly changing, (b) the information is distributed across geographically distant locations, and (c) the complexity of the crisis management organization makes it difficult and time consuming to collaborate and verify obtained information.
