Abstract: During large scale crisis response operations there is an acute and continuous need to efficiently and quickly allocate a dynamically changing supply of resources. In this paper we are proposing a system, which uses polls to seamlessly discover, request, collect and aggregate information from engaged resource providers using the web or mobile devices. At the same time we aim to integrate information from sources such as sensors deployed on incident sites, publicly available open data, corporate legacy systems or documents stored on remote locations. The overall process of such Poll Sourcing also encompasses reservation and order of suitable resources. We provide a validation scenario concerning reservation of hospital beds during a mass casualty incident.
