Abstract

This paper describes the design and prototypical development of a Transactive memory system to assist crisis management agencies and personnel who participate in effective geocollaborative crisis management. The design process is iterative in nature and begins with Daniel Wegner's Transactive memory theory, then extends it to better explain interoperability between multiple agencies. These theoretical extensions are directly applied to the design process which results in the development of a Transactive Memory System prototype. Qualitative evaluations of the prototype are discussed that inform specific design recommendations for the re-design of the prototype.
