AbstractFor effective disaster response, software technology needs to provide several key features: enable real-time reporting of events, aggregate and analyze event reports in real-time, display event reports on maps (2D) and geobrowsers (3D). We propose to leverage several leading-edge software technologies and trends, as well as relevant existing open-source / accessible software platforms and mapping clients. The technologies are: cloud-computing, crowdsourcing, semantic analysis, social media, mobile computing, and geospatial visualization. Our primary innovation is an architectural approach for combining these technologies into one coherent platform and a mobile app software tool for disaster response.
