P01) Cell Phone Memory Embedgreat suggestions, comments and insight from what I can see into what might be and in what to do when a disaster or emergency becomes your reality. embedding critical content into the memory of the phone, so-called need-to-know info, available with or without connectivity would create a viable solution in making life saving decisions. Holding the global patent in 184 countries on embedding emergency content into the memory of the cell phone, and other electronic devices.John Eubank, john@lifesavingadvice.comFounder of LSA

P02) Cap Feed GeneratorJJ, SBCreating CAP compliant SMS alert. CAP = Common Alerting Protocol, can be SMS, radio alert, tornado siren, geocodes, etc. CCWestSahana, Geochat
5
P03) qSo many great suggestions whilst here i sit in the midst of disaster unable to even use googledocs effectively due to extremely limited bandwidth. I remember in Melaboh, Aceh a group offering to setup a fast shared wireless hotspot across the whole city... never happened sadly. Dave.hodgkin@gmail.compost disaster coordinationhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Alerting_Protocol

P09) Upgrading Virtual Call CentersVoice to text ---> text to data ---> geo-location extraction solutions ---> language translation; ability for submitter to be anonymousCCWest
12
P10) Sharing of Aerial Imagery + MetadataJEKSharing professional aerial imagery post disaster. Include metadata such as copyright restrictions, licensing, time-stamping, etc. (on the image?)Kathleen TierneyCommonly done through federal, state, local agencies through emergency operations centers (EOCs)
13
P11) Better Aerial Imagery ToolsSG 1Image feature extraction and imagery assessment models, allow user-generated annotationsCCWest
14
P12) Open Aerial MapSG 1, JEK, MPCrowd sourced aerial imagery. Free and open imagery sources are difficult to share. Low bandwidth environments requires local cache. The OpenAerialMap project is in need of a reboot/re-architecture. Suggestion is to use the hack session to implement phase 1 of the technical proposalSchuyler Erle <schuyler@nocat.net>Mikel Maron, John Crowley, Jeff Johnson, Chris Lippit, Schuyler Erlehttp://www.openaerialmap.org/Main_Page

P13) Trend Analysis on Incident ReportsJMBased on specific events, like Hurricane Katrinia. (Need to maintain privacy). Include Story Corps.CCWestInSTEDD Riffhttp://www.storycorps.org/
16
P14) Crowdsourced Media MonitoringSG 1Allow private individuals to scour, sort, and organize unstructured info from Internet and other media for the benefit of emergency response and media reporting. The Ushahidi initiative, "Swift," is in need of development support. Currently in phase 0.1. http://swiftapp.org.

P15) API's for producing and consuming CAP.MPDevelopers of tools that would produce or consume CAP should have libraries available to them in various programming languages, e.g. Python, Java, C/C++. Such libraries would align with the CAP standard, facilitating (1) for producers, that compliant CAP's can be produced from convenient data structures, and (2) for consumers, that compliant CAP's can be parsed into convenient data structures.Bent Hagemark, GoogleLike libkml for KML. See also caplib from J. Andrew Rogers
18
P16) Tools/websites for CAP validationExtend feedvalidator.org to handle CAP and Atom+CAP and/or provide a capvalidator.orgBent Hagemark, Googlefeeds have feedvalidator.org, kml has kmlvalidator.com, cap xsd, jaxb.

P19) Blackberries (the most likely hardware to already be in use by the agencies and therefore requiring no further expense) are not supported by Picasa web album email uploadPicasa web albums capability to receive geotagged photo uploads via email, then automatically publish to GeoRSS or KML feeds provides a low-cost method to use GPS-enabled camera phones to provide situational awareness. Jeff Martinhttp://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Picasa/thread?fid=0175431624abcbf9000470b811168c1c&hl=en.
22
P20) Create a maps overlay for US National Grid (note: this is done in KML)JMUSNG is a useful geolocation reference. Although less precise than lat/long, in disaster situations this inexactness is sometimes more useful, as it can describe a lack of certainty of exact location (often the case), can describe areas more quickly and easily, and is already in use by most first responding agencies. Once an overlay for the US is completed, investgation on applicability to ROW should begin.Jeff MartinFEMAhttp://www.fgdc.gov/usng
23
P21) Amateur Radio Information Fusion - Project BABBLEIn a major population center there are tens of thousand of licensed amateur radio operators you have an ability to communicate and will have information to share after a major disaster ... what is needed is a fusion center to parse this information ... capabilities include email via the amateur radio system see; winlink.orgRich Davies, Western Disaster Center, davies@westerndisastercenter.orgWestern Disaster CenterThis should not be confused with Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) ... where the amateur radio community provides disaster management community with communications support
24
P22) Crowd-sourcing SMS, photos and video uploads from mobile phones for situational awareness, COPJMCreate iPhone, Android, other mobile OS apps that enable users to upload SMS/photos/video clips (automatically and manually geo-referenced) to a website, and which, in turn, displays these SMS/photos/vids and allows them to be filtered by type, location, severity, etc.----Stretch goal: then, allow them to be ported to other websites
25
P23) "Portable" electronic health records pdDevelop an electronic health record system for developed/developing countries that will identify individuals (ID) so that medical records can be processed, stored, and accessed by relevant agencies, at any time, any region. A system that would support data flow from patient data collection to a central repository. This would support the spatial monitoring/tracking of population distribution and its health status over time. And also ensure apposite and continuity of care for individuals across jurisdictionsFrance Lamy, Frank RijsbermanUNHCRGoogleHealth, OpenMRS, ODK/JavaROSA, Mesh4x
26
P24) Easy user signup and accounts sharingIn a disaster event, with a multiple systems solution being setup (such as what resulted from RELIEF), there must be an easy way for any user to signup to the whole mashup as fast as possible, without a long handshake process. Requiring a different signup in every system of the solution is not viable. Also any data from one system (user, email, phone number, etc) should be easily shared to another system without requiring a cumbersome process such as OAuth, or an external partner such as an OpenID provider (as outside connectivity might not be available).spalladino@gmail.comhttp://weblogs.manas.com.ar/spalladino/2009/08/10/sharing-users-among-systems/
27
P25) Anonymize data contributionsSometimes sensitive data contributions made either via web, mail or SMS must be anonymized, such as in an election monitoring scenario. Some way to ensure that the author of the contribution remains anonymous is necessary.spalladino@gmail.comTodd Huffmanhttp://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1450006 http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8209172.stm
28
P26) Automatic translation for specific messagespdUpon a crisis scenario in which not everyone speaks the same language it is necessary to provide some way for different parties to easily communicate without the need of a human translator who might not always be available, or might generate a bottleneck in the delivery of alerts. Inserting some way of automated translation for crisis specific scenarios in communication tools is necessary. Accuracy of the translated message is imperative (maybe restrict the language to a set of predefined messages to increase correctness by reducing possibilities?) (see Crisis Community Wateringhole and Upgrading Virtual Call Centers)spalladino@gmail.comhttp://translate.google.com/#
29
P27) Determine trust of an information source (same as line #47)When making time-dependant decisions in a crisis based on a certain report, knowing how much can it be trusted is important. Also the level of trust of a source might change depending the network or might even change for each individual. Using data from previous reports, data from other available networks or from a certain asserted qualification of the source might be a good way to determine it.spalladino@gmail.com
30
P28) Visualize video information on a mapDMCJMVideos may be uploaded to YouTube in response to crisis situations. Uploaders can geo-tag such videos to pinpoint the exact location the video pertains to. Using the YouTube API, search for geo-tagged videos that match a specific crisis-related keyword, and display links to those videos on a map using the Google Maps API.jeffy@google.comhttp://code.google.com/apis/youtube/overview.html http://code.google.com/apis/maps/
31
P29) Mobile Status senderDMC, BBCreate a quick-report app that gives a canned update to a pre-defined list, ie. "I'm OK, don't worry," "I need urgent help; my location is x,y." "jeffmartinCiviGuard.com
32
P30) Mobile Exposure Reporting App for Risk & Vulnerability evaluation in Disaster Risk Management (DRM)DMCDuring the ISU Space Studies Program '09 we developed a prototype of an iPhone app for submission of exposure reports. Reports are made on the basis of individual assets/buildings and can include various information such as building category, number of floors, pictures, coordinates, etc. A demo video can be seen at http://www.symphora.org/DREAM/REPORTER.htm. A project for the hackathon could be to finish the development of the app including a secure server application for receiving and storing the reports.Ole G. Poulsen olegammelgaard@gmail.com and Ivo Ferreira ivotomar@gmail.com
33
P31) Mobile Reporting Apps as a ServiceBased on the above suggesting for various reporting tools for both disaster response and risk management it may be interesting to develop a complete framework for making mobile reporting apps. The server side app could run on a hosted platform like Google App Engine and allow institutions to create advanced surveys/report requests. The institution would define a number of fields of various types (text, select from list, pictures, video, GPS coordinates, etc) for the users (or the mobile device) to fill out. The same client app can be used for any of the hosted surveys (users would enter an app id number in the mobile app to get to the right form). The whole thing would be a little like the forms you can make with Google Docs, but optimized for mobile and include special fields such as GPS location and pictures taken with the device. Client apps should be developed for all major mobile platforms (iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, etc). The server could support some of the features suggested above like automatic translation and the possibility to anonymize data.Ole G. Poulsen olegammelgaard@gmail.commesh4x, ODK, CiviGuard.com
34
P32) Web Based World Wind application for Disaster Risk ManagementJMDevelop a WorldWind Web based application to allow choosing an Hazard from a global database, definition of the exposure data and visualization of the risk associated. This could be initially done on a voluntary basis, where the user would input the exposure data in exchange for risk information but could then evolve towards a tool where the inforamtion input woul be mandatory (forced by governements like it is nowadays the case with registry property information). Very important in this tool would the Crowdsourced Monitoring mentioned earlier (validation and verifiation of data) and security issues.Ivo Ferreira - ivotomar@gmail.com

P33) Integration Between/Among "Official" and "Societally-Based Information Collection and DisseminationgKathleen TierneyRon Eguchi ImagecatInc Long Beach, Ca
36
P34) Lack of centralization and structuration of information, and lack of anticipation capacity within each humanitarian NGOBased on a needs assessment with a working group of 9 NGOs, a general need to have a free software to manage their operational information has arised. The functionalites requested by the NGOs are the following:
- management of the status of all projects and contracts handled at HQ
- monitoring of indicators of the projects at different levels
- centralization of the documents of the projects, and online reporting
- a calendar and alerts linked to the different deadlines related to projects and contracts
- quality management and qualit assurance
(demonstration of the functionalities available to be seen at: http://www.urd.org/AnimationSIGMH/index_en.html)

Globally, the NGOs want to stop using heterogeneous Excel worksheets inside their offices, and have each one of them a centralized database where all information about the projects will be gathered. They want also to have a tool to help them to anticipate the deadlines they have to face.

The software has to respect many constraints. It must be multinlingual, simple and intuitive (no training required for people working in the field), modular, highly flexible (each NGO wants to have his own specific system), able to be downloaded installed and used basically without any support, able work in a disconnected mode (like with Google Gears), potentially interoperable with software already in use within NGOs (like SAGA), and usable on any operating system.

37
P35) Reporting information in low-training/low-literacy environmentsIn poor rural areas, local people may barely know how to send and/or receive an SMS, and training costs raise rapidly. Design approaches to low-entry-bar structured and unstructured data reporting with little/no online or technology access, e.g. using pictograms, sounds/audio, etcedjez@instedd.orghttp://walking-papers.org/ , http://drwelby.net/qr-osm.html
38
P36) "I'm a victim..."JMRapid collection, aggregation, and analysis of reports and wants from victims. e.g. I need shelter, water, medicine, to find my parents, etc. If power is down may not have TV, radio. Some way of asking "what just happened?" and "now what?" is likely to be desired. There's also the question of what happens afterwards - "I'm no longer a victim" the necessary records an individual might create during an event - address, names and ages of children, contact phone numbers, next of kin... aren't things that should live on on the Internet for years, perhaps they shouldn't be held anywhere. Michael Saunby mike@saunby.netweather, climate / UK Met Office Hadley CentreCiviGuard.com
39
P37) "I can help..."pd, BBNot everyone in an affected area is a victim. Many people will have skills, equipment, supplies, that will be useful, but don't know who is in charge and where they need to report, or where to go. mike@saunby.net
40
P38) Frequest short-range weather forecastsIn normal times people take shelter from bad weather. If a disaster means they have no shelter then knowing what the weather is going to do is important for survivors, rescuers and those arranging transport and supplies - what types of shelter are needed if the weather is about to change? Global forecasting centres have suitable forecasts even when local met service is out of action. A useful technology might be Digital Radio Mondiale as this enables the transmission of web page content over short-wave radio. Presumably KML files could be transmitted in this way for various uses.mike@saunby.nethttp://www.meteoalarm.eu/

41
P39) Find lost family members from photospdUse face recognition software (Picasaweb?) to match mobile phone photos to existing photographic records, e.g. from schools.mike@saunby.net
42
P40) Lack of comprehensive picture of disaster/crisis situationjwGiven the heterogeneous information mentioned in previous cells: Create Complex Event Processing application that provides a comprehensive operational picture. The solution would: 1 Provide a Geographic Information System representation of the condition. 2. Provide input/upload capabilities for heterogeneous data (types determined by coordinating team) 3. Leverage Complex Event/Event Stream Processing approaches to recognize patterns in incoming event streams. 3. Store incoming data in a searchable form. 4. Allow complex querying of incoming data. 5. Discover associations/relationships among data as an asynchronous background process. 6. Share data with external systems in a standard format. 7. Create a taxonomy/ontology to specify issues associated with a disaster.bob.chatterjee1@gmail.com
43
P41) Automatic Satellite data - orthorectification for rapid disseminationSG 1, JEK, MPLack of exact geo-location info in satellite data limits the utility of rapid response delivery - there is a need for automatic satellite data for rapid dissemination. So you can tie satellite imagery to ground truth “human sensor” report for layering/mashups. (JEK) Use direct-georegistered aerial imagery transects as a means of georegistering the wide area satellite data.Liz Holcombe, Stuart Fryre, Sam Zappas, Brian Herbert, Phil Dixon
44
P42) Integration/interoperability: prediction-decision- alert - mobilizeJMNeed for integrating data to have predictions, so that when a disaster occurs you know how to mobilize people and who to mobilize; via sms updating, decision making experts; CAPRA. Problem is how one effectively alerts people that they have to do something. See bureaucratic decision-making process- decision has to go to a committee, then they decide – we need more urgent action. Development of a decision making algorithm for landslides: you can tell roughly where you are vulnerable – then who to mobilize and who to evacuate. Authority figure would receive data and take action. Q: Admin- alert button? NASA- open ID ideaLiz Holcombe (mossaic@emailplus.org), Stuart Fryre (stuart.w.frye@nasa.gov), Sam Zappas (samz@comcast.net), Brian Herbert (brian@ushahidi.com), Phil Dixon (phild@google.com)
45
P43) Reverse 911 / “Crisis craigslist”pdNeed to identify additional resources at a time of crisis. Database built that allows people to volunteer, contribute (blankets; blood type; $ etc). Create a mobile app users can opt in through cell phone – the govt. could carry all cell users- determine what is available. Reverse 911- call on individuals for help. Liz Holcombe (mossaic@emailplus.org), Stuart Fryre (stuart.w.frye@nasa.gov), Sam Zappas (samz@comcast.net), Brian Herbert (brian@ushahidi.com), Phil Dixon (phild@google.com)
46
P44) Credibility of the human sensorJMProgrammatically determine trustworthiness of crowdsourced data points/sources. ie. Build an algorithm to track accuracy of entries by a user (ebay model), Track twitter hash tags, use community moderation, or use # of crowd-contributed confirming data points.Liz Holcombe (mossaic@emailplus.org), Stuart Fryre (stuart.w.frye@nasa.gov), Sam Zappas (samz@comcast.net), Brian Herbert (brian@ushahidi.com), Phil Dixon (phild@google.com)
47
P45) CERTSOrganizing the social network before the event using community responder teams- community registers and volunteers info; trusted users; social network developed before the event. Using already existing organizations. Local assessment after disaster- using web 2.0- walking maps, sms, feed info fast. Stuart Gill (sgill@worldbank.org), Joaquin Toro (jtoro@worldbank.org), Zeeshan Suhail (zsuhail@worldbank.org), Whit Morriss (whit@opengeo.org), Emma Phillips (ephillips@worldbank.org)
48
P46) Live update Triage mapjwPicture of what is happening, updated live in context of the crisis; collaborative filtering issues- only care about certain things- need networks of trust. Filter system established beforehand. Determine hotspots. Maps of critical areas and infrastructure- keep tally of hospital beds and supplies.Stuart Gill (sgill@worldbank.org), Joaquin Toro (jtoro@worldbank.org), Zeeshan Suhail (zsuhail@worldbank.org), Whit Morriss (whit@opengeo.org), Emma Phillips (ephillips@worldbank.org)
49
P47) The money tracker/ where did my money goSmart way to make donations and track those donations - You can track where donations are going- like you track your mail. In this way you can leverage transparency – and it becomes a social change tool. As text messages are sent when supplies are arriving at shelters- connect it to ensure money arrives at right place- as well as meeting the right needs (i.e. we need cash not cans). Organizations can state we are winning- donors know where to donate $$ (One laptop per child initiative). Stuart Gill (sgill@worldbank.org), Joaquin Toro (jtoro@worldbank.org), Zeeshan Suhail (zsuhail@worldbank.org), Whit Morriss (whit@opengeo.org), Emma Phillips (ephillips@worldbank.org)
50
P48) Maps of critical infrastructure1Post Disaster Needs Assessment-community reports on needs after a disaster. Visual Map- eg. click on hospital- 5 beds available need x supplies.Stuart Gill (sgill@worldbank.org), Joaquin Toro (jtoro@worldbank.org), Zeeshan Suhail (zsuhail@worldbank.org), Whit Morriss (whit@opengeo.org), Emma Phillips (ephillips@worldbank.org)
51
P49) Crowd sourcing and risk preparednessRisk identification and risk awareness – recurrent disaster for which crowds have knowledge. Using citizens as sensors – input device of choice (template the input- hazard specific/ multi-language). Database, visualization, open and accessible data. The idea behind it is the more people you add – the closer you get to the right answer- need template that user can follow to sms basic info on risk identification and assessment, which will be sent to a data center. Daniele Ehrlich (daniele.ehrlich@jrc.ec.europa.eu), Malcolm Anderson (mossaic@emailplus.org), Patrick Svenburg (psv@microsoft.com), Noel Dickover (ndickover@gmail.com)
52
P50) Sharing / aggregation of community risk assessmentsThere are a number of entries above the talk about coordinating disaster response assessment information and touch tangentially on pooling community reports. It would be useful to have a clearinghouse system that solidly supported this pooling allowing community organizations, NGOs, and local governments to share community risk assessment information (both pre- and post- disaster) and search through the assessments that have been contributed by others. This would cut down on a lot of the duplication that goes on.

A key part of the approach would need to be the use of existing assessment reports in whatever format that they are developed, so that the project doesn't run aground trying to develop a universal assessment form. There perhaps could be some kind of standardized summary information that could be collected to provide a base for aggregating some basic results.

53
P51) Passable Road map updatesJMAfter any sort of disaster (flood, hurricane, earthquake) frequently roads or parts of roads are out of commission. Some way to mark broken road segments is needed, and something like Google Maps getting directions taking those broken roads into consideration is needed to facilitate moving people, supplies, etc. Also, the same map could list in what way various road segments are out of commission (power line down on road, tree down, gaping chasm, flooded) so that road clearing efforts could be optimized to restore reachability of various areas with minimal/appropriate effort.Marc Mengel (marc.mengel@gmail.com)Google Maps, TomTom(route around traffic)
54
P52) "Mars Lander" comm stationJEK, MPUnit you could drop onto high ground from a helicoptor/airplane which would sprout a cell tower and comsat dish and run on its own power for up to 72 hours, providing cellular telphone service. Alternative would be airborne solution (orbiting small aircraft/UAV or aerostat) with WiMax backhaul.Marc Mengel (marc.mengel@gmail.com), jekain@geovantage.comCAISI http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/land/wsh/72.pdf
55
P53) Control dangerous advertisements on the internetJJThere is a lot of ad about misleading products and offers that cause people lots of financial trouble. Why not stop them? It might not get to the thirth world and everything but hey, citizens of your own contry get in major trouble because the believe those ads so maybe we could do something to stop them. Isabel G. (anne_gaud@yahoo.ca)
56
P54) Expedite resources & minimize costs/time for international resources reaching destination pointsProtected dbase/site where local aid workers and trusted sources in each country and each local area could daily enter current information about local conditions and how to get through them quickly, or get around them, and when to come through. Include trustworthiness algorithm of some type, and a way to validate who's entering the info. Access for all trusted aid agencies. Include way to enter whether there's someone available to escort aid and transport people to/through tricky areas.Lorna H., bronwynsings@yahoo.com
57
P55) Simple lightweight standalone web format for expressing Building Floor Plans to help Emergency First RespondersWLF, JW, SRProvide methods for generating easy to use electronic floor plans to assist firefighters and Search and Rescue. These should be openable from a Common Operating Picture map and describe important safety elements such as exits, stairs, sprinkler shutoffs, alarm panels, and rooms with hazardous materials. Should be scalable to work on smart phones, laptops, and multi-screen displays. David Coggeshall ibcomm@aol.comNIST BFRL (Building Fire Research Lab)Research Project at Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valleyhttp://www.cmu.edu/silicon-valley/research/floor-plan/index.html
58
P56) Common Operating Picture for situational analysisDMC, SR, MPDevelop integrated protocols to use existing map technology to create a common operating picture for emergency responders to use for diasters and exercises to gain a better understanding of situation status. This is a many to many approach for fast data gathering and event priority analysis through spatial comparison of severity, implication and importance. Similar to #58, it should be scalable to work on smart phones, laptops, and multi-screen displays.Jim Wollbrinck, jim_wollbrinck@sjwater.comMaplab, BASIC, CESA, Golden Gate Safety NetworkComOpView.org - Demo sitehttp://www.ComOpView.org
59
P57) United Nations knowledge portal for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (UN-SPIDER)SG, JEKSpider is based on Drupal, and the disastrous events of the past 2 months in the Pacific are driving requirements. The tech architecture we are working towards at: http://maps.geography.uc.edu/~cgn/SPIDER_mapping_arch.doc We are leveraging the Drupal content management framework, with special attention to identity, workflow, CCK and mapping modules, as well as the 'CiviCRM' contact relationship management system. We understand and are working on how best to integrate Google 'mapmaker' data after the presentations so kindly given by Google at the SPIDER workshop in Bonn. The intent is to have reusable, role-based multilingual workflow templates for core functionalities of UNDACS clusters, that can feed recreation/establishment of e-Goveernment and NSDI. This work has grown from the experiences gained building Globexplorer, and discussions that grew from the WBANK/CGIAR/FAO/UN GIS discussions 6 yrs ago resulting in the concept paper: http://maps.geography.uc.edu/~cgn/envportal/CGIAR_prop.html Chris Nicholas, chris.nicholas@unoosa.orgC4I, RS/GIS, mobile augmented reality, GRID computing, MMO gaming, JBoss/Java, more PHP Drupal all the timethe ftp mechanism of http://www.disasterscharter.orghttp://www.un-spider.org
60
P58) Patient/IDP/Refugee TrackingJJA way to keep track of Patients/IDPs/Refugees and follow them as they are transferred and move in and out of camps/facilities without the need to re-enter the data once it has been collected. Should be able to offer:
a. A quick way (Automated/Manual) to gather a person's data and reduce/eliminate multiple entries, through various means like driver license scanners, barcode and magnetic card readers and be able to track/uniquely identify the same person without having to re-enter the data.
b. A way to search for a person.
c. A way to generate reports related to persons in a camp/facility.
d. A way to generate a transfer request when moving persons.
e. A way to generate a transport manifest for multiple transfers.

P59) Reverse 911 for cell phones and desktopJM,JJ, MPUsing IP geo id and cell phone triangulation (+mobile gps where available), push alerts to users about impending/developing disasters. This could be an app, a gadget, a browser extension, etc.
62
P60) mobile application for disaster response - empowering communities by reshaping emergency response protocolsTGusing iPhone app to receive critical user status updates in (and immediately following) a disaster (or large accident) and mapping those updates. At basic level: user input will consist of single touch button status updates on personal health and physical environment . Output will map local real time user responses. Required technologies: GPS enabled mobile device, mobile application to prompt status update buttons and then map status updates and make map available. For example in an earthquake + fire scenario, users can rapidly update personal health status (injured or not), surrounding environment status (reports of fire, smoke, damage, etc), and then view a map of similar updates from their local community. First responders and users will have a real-time map of the evolution of hazards to aid in decision making. Further capabilities include automatic friend critical status updates, emergency egress routes, first responder locations. This application would enable users to act as dispatchers - thus bypassing a weak link in the emergency response process.Shideh Dashti (shideh@berkeley.edu) and Shawhin Roudbari (shawhin.roudbari@gmail.com)http://wp.me/p4GWU-9C
63
Citizen-Authority Mobile Alert NetworkMobile phone subscribers are sent emergency alerts and provided with guidance related to their specific location (based on users mobile phone signal). An alert aggregator and gateway would receive, authenticate, validate and format local alerts and forward them to a given commercial mobile service (CMS, i.e Verizon) which would transmit alerts to subscriber handsets.
