Abstract

Establishing and maintaining communication between decision makers, professional responders and general public is vital in many emergency planning and rescue situations. In this paper we present our research on using first-hand information collected by mobile users to increase the flexibility and richness in collaborative emergency management. We propose our design to support direct positioning, quick assessment, and rich communication by leveraging mobile uploaded geo-tagged photos as shared media.
