In an emergency situation, relevant information about involved elements is required. This information ranges from demographic data, weather forecasts and sensor data, available transportation means, presence of helpful agents, land use and cover statistics or values, etc. Moreover, the emergency management process is dynamic as it involves several definite steps, described in standard procedures from which the Emergency Officer (EO) should not depart without good reason. Multiple agencies own the relevant data and possess parts of emergency related knowledge.
