Abstract

This paper discusses the development of the CEM-DIT (Communication in Emergency Management through Data Integration and Trust) system, which allows decision makers in crises to send out automated data requests to multiple heterogeneous and potentially unknown sources and interactively determine how reliable, relevant and trustworthy the responses are. We describe the underlying technology, which is based partially on data integration and matching, and partly on utilisation of provenance data. We describe our cooperation with the Urban Observatory (UO), which allows us to develop the system in collaboration with developers of the kind of crisis-relevant data which the system is designed for. The system is currently in development, and we describe which parts are fully implemented and which are currently being developed.
