  1. Disaster Assessment Management Network Jeremy Hanni Ronald Romain 1/11/2004

  2. Operational Concept • Provide an architecture for coordinating eye witness information with relief efforts in disaster situations. • Utilize PDAs, Cellphones, and mapping environments to provide a coordinated system.

  3. System Requirements Mobile Client #1: General Users • Be able to quickly assess conditions based on the type of catastrophe and previous user responses. • Be able to locate the user’s position within a reasonable radius of approximately 150 meters.

  4. System Requirements Mobile Client #2: Responders and Relief Workers (RARW) • Receives information delegating where they should focus relief efforts, and how they should distribute resources as dictated by the Relief Organizers. • Responders should be able to status conditions after reports have been received.

  5. System Requirements Relief Organizer Client • Assesses information provided to the server by General Users and RARW to determine what the current conditions are. • Schedules further relief efforts and resources distribution based on the above. • Uses a geographic interface to perform all their tasks.

  6. System Requirements Server • Keeps track of information provided by the General Users. • Allows RARWs and Relief Organizers to status user assessments. • Keeps track of geographic data to provide a comprehensive map of the disaster area. • Keeps track of resources available and resources that have been distributed and where each of these resides.

  7. System and Software Architecture • Hardware Involved: • PDA with wireless support and an intuitive development environment. • Cellphones with E-911 and JVM or .NET support. • IISQLSRV Database/Web Server.

  8. System and Software Architecture Software Involved: • Microsoft MapPoint Server and Web Services • SQL Server 2000 • IIS 6.0 • Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 • Internet Explorer 6.0 for Relief Organizer Clients • J2ME or .NET Mobile Framework support

  9. Mobile Client #1 IIS Server/Map Server Mobile Client #2 DB Server Relief Organizer Clients System and Software Architecture

  10. Lifecycle Plan • Who Wants It Now? • Governments • Relief Organizations • The Red Cross • USAID • Red Crescent

  11. Lifecycle Plan • Who Will be Affected Later? • Future cell phones may be forced to use our application by the aforementioned Governments • Relief efforts will be coordinated, saving people who care to use our system

  12. Lifecycle Plan • Who will support it? • DAMN International Technologies will support the future development and maintenance of this application.

  13. Feasability The most considerable efforts will probably be focused in the following areas: • Constructing a data architecture that is sufficient to analyze the user inputs, and is scalable for further system enhancements. • Learning the API’s and coordinating interfaces between the clients and server side applications. • Testing the application to see that it performs within the bounds of the System Requirements.
