 Development of Crisis Room Tools
The action is aimed at the creation of an integrated information environment that may be used for several different purposes: global crises management, humanitarian aid or coastal monitoring. The action also plans to create a " situation room model " in which all the various tools can be put into operation and tested under simulated and real crisis situations. The "situation room model" can be used at all times and can become a "crisis" room in critical periods. JRC and the SES unit in particular have extensive expertise in building web collection and analysis tools (Digital Map Archive, Global Disaster Alert System, RSS Broker) and implementing them as DG services. This action will leverage existing tools and deploy them as flexible, interoperable, customizable and user-friendly applications targeted towards specific DG needs. In particular, the focus is on:
  • data collection from existing sources, live media/web and users (email, SMS, phone) etc;
  • validation and processing of information (e.g. use of existing models for consequences evaluation and forecasting)
  • presentation and dissemination of information for an effective decision process using all appropriate channels (PDA, SMS, email, web, etc)
  • creation of automatic newsletters and moderation services
  • Key challenges and R/D elements of the action are the integration of strategic data and information, part of which is provided by the other three actions (IMIA, EMM and GeoSpaSec) in the Support to External Security Unit, and real-time delivery of value-added and reliable information through secure and inter-operable systems. Other challenges include the development of management tools for sharing information between geographically distributed systems and databases to facilitate the integration of pertinent information and services for effective early warning, situation awareness and response during crisis events. Inter-operability as well as protection and security of information will be key issues addressed by the action. The aim of the action in 2005 is to maintain the existing systems, modify them to changing needs and develop a number of additional tools and systems that will be used to monitor and manage emergency situations. These tools will be deployed for service to customers in RELEX, TREN, ECHO, SANCO and JAI. The basic web site is: RSS Broker.
