Results from the Survey on User Requirements in the domain of Crisis and Disaster Management

Results from the Survey on User Requirements in the domain of Crisis and Disaster Management

The following figures depict the results based on a survey done in the period of 2 months at the beginning of year 2016. A lot of different countries are presented, as can be seen in the first figure below. All figures can be traced back to the questions in the Survey.

There are two types of plots used: bar plot, in which the most significant answers are placed at the top and the least significant at the bottom, and radio chart (a.k.a. spider plot), where a scale of 1 to 5 is used, with 5 being the most important. Levels of importance are given as: Low (1-3), Medium (3.1-4) and High (4.1-5). Click on a figure for a better view.

Results from the CDM Survey soon to be available

Results from the CDM Survey soon to be available

The C2-SENSE consortium performed a survey on user requirements by offering a questionnaire and by analysing the answers.

The questionnaire was available on the C2-SENSE web site, and offered in several languages: English, Franch, Italian and Turkish (see here). This allowed also users located outside of Europe to fill in the questionnaire and provide valueable information. The targeted group were people involved or somehow connected to the field of crisis and disaster management. There are 58 responses at the time of writing. Since the C2-SENSE’s goal is to provide a Framework dealing with decision making and data exchange and communicaton during crisis situations, the survey is of crucial importance for achieving this goal.

The results of this survey will be presented soon.

C2-SENSE at Austrian Research Promotion Agency

The FP7 project C2-SENSE was presented at the Workshop in Vienna related to H2020: “Protecting Critical Infrastructures and addressing Disaster Resilience in H2020”.

It was presented by Refiz Duro (AIT) to an audience interested in the forthcomming calls. C2-SENSE was one of the three FP7 project presented, after, among others, a presenation by the European Comission’s representative Phillippe Quevauviller.

C2-SENSE focuses on profile-based interoperability among crisis responders (and their tools) in the emergency domain area, and as such is of much interest for crisis managers. Two main subject were presented, due to interest of the audience:

a) the technical background and technologies used in the project

b) the view on the consortium.

The presentation slides of the C2-SENSE talk, and also other participants’ slides are available on FFG’s website.

C2-SENSE Poster presented in Vienna

C2-SENSE Poster presented in Vienna

C2-SENSE developments have been presented during the second day of the “1st ICA European Symposium on Cartography” symposium, held in Vienna between 10th and 12th November.

The main subject of the presentation was the work currently ongoing in the Work Package 3 – the theme of the Collaboration Environment & Knowledge Layer. In specific, Object of Interests (OOI) that actually are data representing real-life objects (e.g., sensors) were put in context with an emergency situation. The significance of its proper presentation on map was emphasized. This part of the C2-SENSE Framework is very important, since The Collaboration Environment allows emergency managers to do more precise and correct decisions.

The title of the poster is “Disasters, Maps & Data: C2-SENSE – Objects of Interest in Disaster Related Real-Time Situations”, and the poster can be downloaded from our C2-SENSE Publication page.
