Title Robust Private Web Maps with Open Tools and Open Data Type Conference Article
Year 2019 Publication Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response And Management Abbreviated Journal Iscram 2019
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Maps, Web-Based Systems, Tools, Open Data, OpenStreetMap
Abstract Crisis management information often has a geospatial dimension that allows it to be visualized on a map. As

more and more systems are developed as web-based applications, maps have also become a common sight in such

applications. The de-facto solution to add maps to web-based applications is to integrate a third-party service.

For web-based crisis management information systems, this approach has two disadvantages. First, the third-party

service must be available and reachable. Second, by using third-party services you implicitly share what you are

viewing, with the risk of unintentionally exposing sensitive location information. In this Tool Talks paper, we show

how to create a robust and private alternative for web-based maps using open source tools and open data.

Title Quantitative data about deaths due to COVID-19 and comparability between countries: An approach through the case of Spain Type Conference Article
Year 2021 Publication ISCRAM 2021 Conference Proceedings – 18th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal Iscram 2021
Volume Issue Pages 294-304
Keywords COVID-19, Mortality data, Public health data, Crisis analytics, Health crisis, Open data sources
Abstract Mortality statistics tend to be inaccurate because of the imperfections related to individual deaths' recording. Recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought controversies regarding the quantification of deaths in many countries. Mainly, controversies were fueled by the sudden change of the criteria being applied, the limited testing and tracing capacities, and the collapse of the healthcare system. This work analyses the case of Spain, which constitutes one of the European countries with the highest number of cases and deaths during the 'first wave'. It provides a discussion about the coherence, traceability and limitations of quantitative data sources, as a basis to improve the quality of the data and its comparability between different countries and over time. Official data sources and non-official data sources are considered. Finally, suggestions of improvement and research needs are gathered, for the reliability of mortality data as a way to enhance learning and resilience for future crises.

Title Linked open data and the design of information infrastructure for emergency management systems Type Conference Article
Year 2011 Publication 8th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management: From Early-Warning Systems to Preparedness and Training, ISCRAM 2011 Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2011
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Civil defense; Disasters; Emergency services; Information systems; Management information systems; Risk management; Collaborative decision making; Emergency management; Emergency management systems; Government agencies; Information infrastructures; Linked open data (LOD); Linked open datum; Semantic web approach; Information management
Abstract Correct information is a vital resource during disasters. Without adequate information, response actions may be ineffective. What is the source of information of emergency management systems? Besides that originated from sensors, the emergency team and the public in general, a very relevant source is government data, such as demographic and geographic data, road maps, etc. The heterogeneity of information formats is a well-known problem that affects organizations and communities that want to access public data. Today, most public agencies provide access to their data, but the great majority is unreadable by automated mechanisms. Besides, most of them do not provide a dictionary meaning for the published content. A solution to this problem is of particular importance to emergency response organizations that need access to all information available to better respond to disasters and crisis. The linked open data (LOD) initiative allows the interconnection of data, using standards in the context of the semantic web approach. In ideal conditions, government agencies publish their public data, thus allowing the use of automated data concerned consumers, whether they are other government agencies or citizens. Efforts aimed to link government data are growing in several countries around the world. This talk presents the LOD concepts and describes an architecture that uses LOD in the design of an Emergency Management System. It describes a scheme for collecting available data from government agencies, such as departments of health, transport, works, that can supply information needs during an emergency response operation.

Title Intelligent fire risk monitor based on Linked Open Data Type Conference Article
Year 2017 Publication Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response And Management Abbreviated Journal Iscram 2017
Volume Issue Pages 294-306
Keywords Semantic Web; Linked Data; Open Data; Firefighting; Risk Assessment
Abstract Every day the Fire department of the Netherlands work hard to save people's lives. Therefore, they have been investing in Business Intelligence approaches for several years, to get more information for accident prevention and accident fighting. In this paper, Linked Open Data has been used as a business intelligence approach for the creation of dwelling fire risk profiles based on demographic data. During the research a Proof of Concept showed the appliance of Linked Open Data for this purpose. However the data have some quality mismatches, such as: outdated, accuracy issues and not 100% complete. Evaluation session proofed that the outcomes show similarities with a fire incident map and the gut feeling of several firefighters.

Title Sizing the Infrastructure and Architecture of Information for Risk Management 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 disaster risk management; information shared; Infrastructure; make decisions; metadata; open data; semantic
Abstract In Costa Rica, there is an acceptable work in the area of risk management and an advanced system of emergency response. However, it is recognized and accepted the lack of a comprehensive shared approach to manage disaster risk that involves the prevention of disasters in the National System for Disaster Risk Management (SNGR in Spanish). One of the main needs is the lack of a shared and accessible national platform of timely and updated information for risk management. Considering this weakness, we submitted a proposal to the authorities of the University of Costa Rica (UCR) and the Consejo Superior Universitario Centroamericano (CSUCA) that was sponsored by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). The project seek to develop an information platform which uses a Content Management System with meta data, semantic , taxonomic and georeferenced information for local, regional and national levels in Costa Rica. The system also serves as a network for data producers, analysts, users of public and private institutions, and of the population in general.
