The wiki concept
The wiki concept

  • Wiki is a software that enables users to collaboratively create and edit web content directly, using a web browser.

  • The most famous wiki site is Wikipedia, the web-based free encyclopedia.


Milwiki
Milwiki

  • At the Armed Forces C2 Development Centre in Enköping, FOI has introduced MilWiki, a wiki for military knowledge base management.

  • MilWiki is based on open source software, extended to handle geographical information.

  • Milwiki was used in an exercise at Demo 06 Vår.

  • The results of the experiment are documented in FOI Memo 1711.


Civil crisis scenario
Civil crisis scenario

  • In a large-scale civil crisis scenario, normal sources and paths of information will not function optimally.

  • London bombings 2005:

    • The public used blogs and photo sharing on the Internet to share observations and experiences.

    • The page “7 July London bombings” was created on Wikipedia and then continuously updated.

  • Similar behavior appeared during hurricane Katrina in August 2005.

  • A non-public wiki for on-the-fly information gathering could be valuable to authorities trying to create a picture of a chaotic situation.
