Spatiotemporal Mashups: A Survey of Current Tools to Inform Next Generation Crisis Support - ISCRAM 2009 Conference

ISCRAM 2009 Conference for the Human-Computer Interaction track on Interactive Map Technologies session

Abstract: Developments in information and communication technology (ICT) have adjusted the opportunities for spatial and temporal representations of data, possibly permitting the simultaneous visualization of how different regions and populations are affected during large-scale emergencies and crises. We surveyed 13 crisis-related mashups to derive some high-level design directions to guide the design and testing of next generation crisis support tools. The current web mashups offer a new way of looking at how crises are spatiotemporally ordered. However, since all technology is constrained by limitations of design choice, examining the limits and possibilities of what current design choices afford can inform attributes of what next generation crisis support tools would require.

  • People use the dimensions of time and place to explain how such a crisis develops to make sense of its impact on society. We all care about designing crisis support tools. Our research lab particularly cares about what technology does to our understanding of how crises play out in time and place. In my current research, I am not only interested in how to use this data in the immediate-term but also in the long-term. Therefore, in this paper, we suggest some design directions to help make sense of crisis data useful in the long-term.
