The membership of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) seeks public comment on the OGC Emergency and Disaster Management Information Framework Discussion Paper.
This paper proposes the establishment of information management ecosystems for Emergency and Disaster Management (EDM) planning and for decision support during unpredictable and rapidly evolving EDM situations. In contrast to monolithic information systems, information ecosystems consist of diverse services that can interoperate and access multiple data sources through common interfaces. This approach provides maximum resilience and flexibility for delivery of situational awareness and reliable decision support. Essential service types and related standards are described.
The purpose and scope of this paper is to help EDM organizations and their technology providers address the topics that need to be taken into account when planning and developing EMD information ecosystems. It presents recommended practices and highlights gaps that need to be addressed.
