Transcript

  • 1. Disaster Warnings
    My thoughts on how it should work
    @rexster 14/01/11
  • 2. 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
  • 3. 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.
  • 4. 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
  • 5.
  • 6.
  • 7. 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
