Title Application “Pomoc” – Emergency Calls with Geo-location Type Conference Article
Year 2016 Publication ISCRAM 2016 Conference Proceedings – 13th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2016
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Mobile Application; Geo-location; Emergency Calls
Abstract Location of emergency events is one of the crucial aspects during rescue actions. However, there are situations, when people calling for help are not able to provide their precise location (due to e.g. being lost). In the same time, people use mobile phones with advanced capabilities every day. Thus, the idea behind application “Pomoc” (“Help” in Polish) presented in this paper is to make use of already available feature of mobile phones, i.e. GPS (General Positioning System) receiver. Application enables citizens to make emergency call (using European emergency call number 112) and send GPS location to Public Safety Organizations (PSOs), and from the PSOs side – to receive this call and locate it on the map through the desktop part of the application. Application is developed within the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme project SOTERIA: On-line and Mobile Communications for Emergencies (http://soteria.i112.eu/). End users of SOTERIA project are citizens and PSOs.

Title Social media in crisis management – The iSAR+ project survey Type Conference Article
Year 2014 Publication ISCRAM 2014 Conference Proceedings – 11th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2014
Volume Issue Pages 707-711
Keywords Disaster prevention; Information systems; Mobile telecommunication systems; Risk management; Citizens; Crisis management; Disaster relief; Social media; User requirements; Surveys
Abstract Social media together with still growing social media communities has become a powerful and promising solution in crisis and emergency management. Previous crisis events have proved that social media and mobile technologies used by citizens (widely) and public services (to some extent) have contributed to the post-crisis relief efforts. The iSAR+ EU FP7 project aims at providing solutions empowering citizens and PPDR (Public Protection and Disaster Relief) organizations in online and mobile communications for the purpose of crisis management especially in search and rescue operations. This paper presents the results of survey aiming at identification of preliminary end-user requirements in the close interworking with end-users across Europe.

Title Text Analysis Tool TWeet lOcator – TAT2 Type Conference Article
Year 2015 Publication ISCRAM 2015 Conference Proceedings – 12th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2015
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords AIDA; Crisis Management; iSAR+; location of Twitter messages; social media
Abstract Information about location and geographical coordinates in particular, may be very important during a crisis event, especially for search and rescue operations – but currently geo-tagged tweets are extremely rare. Improved capabilities of capturing additional location from Twitter (up to 4 times improvement) are crucial for response efforts given a vast amount of messages exchanged during a crisis event. That is why authors have designed a tool (Text Analysis TWeet lOcator – TAT2) that relies on existing open source text analysis tools with additional services to provide additional hints about people location. Validation process, complementing experimentation and test results, included involvement of end-users (i.e. Public Protection and Disaster Relief services and citizens during a realistic crisis exercise showcase. In addition, the integration of TAT2 with external tools has also been validated.
