Abstract

People need to understand the kinds of disaster information available from the multiple participants involved and respond to complex situations in disaster management. This paper presents a method of constructing common operational pictures to achieve situation awareness during disaster response among the emergency response agencies. The method of common operational pictures is featured with the visualization and collaborative work of current undergoing response measures and future state prediction provided by computational disaster models. It was visualized by integrating base map, disaster influence, future state prediction and resource allocation supported by GIS technologies. The technical architecture was realized with GIS services and data fusion technologies in a network centric system. Keywords: GIS, common operational pictures, disaster response, collaborative work.
