Abstract: Interoperability is a core component in management of crises and disasters. Crises require interoperability on several different levels: physical (communication, devices and tools), operational (crisis response procedures and protocols) and document level (information exchange). Here we present the Framework that facilitates interoperability on a level that relieves a crisis manager from most burdens related to crisis response (e.g., being available to access sensor data or communicate with other responders). The software components in the Framework are described, as well as the profiling approach that is necessitated for functioning interoperability at such a demanding level. The frequency of disasters is expected to increase in the forthcoming future mostly due to environmental changes. It is therefore necessary to provide the solutions, such as this one, to the interoperability issues encountered while dealing with crises.

Abstract: Different organizations with their Command & Control (C2) and Sensing Systems have to cooperate and constantly exchange and share data and information in order to manage emergencies, crises and disasters. Although in-dividual standards and specifications are usually adopted in C2 and Sensing Systems separately, there is no common, unified interoperability specification to be adopted in an emergency situation, which creates a crucial interoperability challenge for all the involved organizations. To address this challenge, we in-troduce a novel and practical profiling approach, which aims at achieving seam-less interoperability of C2 and Sensing Systems in emergency management. At the end of this interoperability challenge a Pilot Application is set up and will be tested in the field to demonstrate the advantages resulting from this effort. This paper gives an overview about the involved entities in the pilot application scenario and the testing of the system functionality by using predefined micro-scenarios suitable for the pilot region in Apulia.

 

Achieving Semantic Interoperability in Emergency Management Domain

(Published)

Mert Gençtürk (SRDC), Enver Evci (SRDC), Arda Guney (SRDC), Yildiray Kabak (SRDC) and Gokce B. Laleci Erturkmen (SRDC)

For the International Symposium on Environmental Software Systems (ISESS 2017) , Zadar, Croatia. May 10-12, 2017.

Abstract: This paper describes how semantic interoperability can be achieved in emergency management domain where different organizations in different do-mains should communicate through a number of distinct standards to manage crises and disasters effectively. To achieve this goal, a common ontology is de-fined as lingua franca and standard content models are mapped one by one to the ontology. Then, information represented in one standard is converted to another according to the mappings and exchanged between parties.
