    Emergency Warnings Emergency Warnings Presentation Transcript

    • Disaster Warnings
      My thoughts on how it should work
      @rexster 14/01/11
    • Current Situation
      Where data is available it appears as a Flag/marker on a map
      A user cannot get granular information about whether they are subject to a direct threat and when it is expected to hit them
    • Black Saturday Royal Commission
      All bushfire warnings issued in Victoria must use clear language, avoid euphemisms, and contain explicit information in relation to:
        the severity, location, predicted direction and likely time of impact of bushfires on specific communities and locations; and
        the predicted severity of impact of the bushfire and whether a specific fire poses a threat to human life.
    • Prototype Solution
      Provide Overview
      Search Based App allows user to go granular
      Show Current state and predicted state using transparent overlays not flags or markers
      Allow user to animate over time
    • Application to QLD Floods
      Available data is much more granular
      Flood Maps sites are showing flags and markers so don’t allow user to identify specific threat or when it is predicted to hit
      Show data using overlays and time control
