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