Abstract

Effectiveness and popularity of an information system is nowadays significantly influenced by its social aspects and the benefits it provides for the user community. This paper presents a progress report of recent developments within the Task 4.6. of the INDECT project aimed at development of a threat monitoring system with social features and GIS integration. The main focus is on the improved prototype system for distributed knowledge acquisition and management. The prototype is a result of a thorough analysis of previous attempts to develop the system, and a reworked design and implementation with several important improvements. In the paper, the concepts and requirements of the system are briefly recalled, selected features of the enhanced system are highlighted and a practical use case example is described. The presented scenario illustrates how citizens and police officers can cooperate with high efficiency and low cost using the system.
