Abstract

In this paper we present an information system improving situational awareness, communication and management during a flooding crisis. The system is based on the agent framework (JADE) and a blackboard like functionality, which enables rescue workers and services to improve communication, increase context awareness and activate rescue services. Observers in the crisis field, modelled as an agent, report about their observations using an iconbased crisis App on a smartphone. A prototype has been implemented and tested in field experiments.
