Madeline's talk is titled: FEMA's Hurricane Incident Journal: A Web Application Supporting Event-Specific Decision Support
For emergency managers, government officials, and others who must respond to rapidly changing natural disasters, timely access to detailed information related to affected terrain, population and infrastructure is critical for planning, response and recovery operations. Accessing, analyzing and disseminating such disparate information in near real-time are critical decision support components. However, finding a way to handle a variety of informative yet complex datasets poses a challenge when preparing for and responding to disasters. Here, we discuss the implementation of a web-based data integration and decision support tool for hurricanes developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as a solution to some of these challenges.
