Abstract For successful firefighting, information is key. In this work, a general overview of the current challenges and

trends of data management for firefighting in Germany and the Netherlands are examined. This was accomplished

by conducting a literature review to find out the current state-of-the-art in research. The results of the literature

review are then compared with expert sentiments and gaps between research and practice are revealed. Through

the review, six challenge categories are identified: cartographic data harmonization, IS standardization,

information gathering from unstructured data, canonical bodies of knowledge, and data-driven firefighting

support. The challenges and trends are discussed in the context of Germany and the Netherlands and significant

differences are presented. Lastly, the gaps between research and practice are thoroughly analyzed and potentials

for future work revealed.
