The information changes rapidly. The Hazards Data Distribution System enables us to get Satellite images showing the evolution of the meterologicla conditions, so does EC Copernicus Emergency Management Service. As the situation evolves, typically we tend to assume that we have a more clear understanding of the situation on the ground. But given the plethora of pieces of information from various sources that need to be interpreted, understood, evaluated and then shared with the right people, this is a challenge.
One of the questions we would like to address is, which sources of information are actually used in the field. What are the requirements with respect to reliability, relevance, and trustworthiness? How can the information be made accessible and manageable to the responders on-site?
