    APPLICATION OF MOBILE GISERVICES IN DISASTER MANAGEMENT

    Security & Future, Vol. 1 (2017), Issue 3, pg(s) 102-105

    Increasing data heterogeneity, fragmentation and volume, coupled with complex connections among specialists in disaster response, mitigation, and recovery situations demand new approaches for information technology to support crisis management. Advances in GIServices show promise to support time-sensitive collaboration, analytical reasoning, problem solving and decision making for crisis management. Furthermore, as all crises have geospatial components, crisis management tools need to include geospatial data representation and support for geographic contextualization of location-specific decision-making throughout the crisis. This paper provides introduction and description of Mobile GIServices applied to crisis management activity. The goal of Mobile GIServices in this context is to support situational awareness, problem solving, and decision making using highly interactive, visual environments that integrate multiple data sources that include georeferencing.

    IMPROVEMENT OF EARLY WARNING SYSTEMS

    Security & Future, Vol. 1 (2017), Issue 2, pg(s) 54-57

    The aim of this article is to describe the general methodology of early warning systems. The common disaster monitoring system was analyzed, and the construction system of disaster information management system was discussed particularly. This paper addresses traditional views of early warning systems and what is needed to turn them into efficient, people-centred systems.
