Crisis Response and Intervention Supported by Semantic Data Pooling

ICT of the Future Program – FFG Project No 887554

The CRISP Project represents a data-driven approach to Crisis Response and Intervention. It considers both the short-term management of disasters as well as long-term economic impact assessments, at fine-grained regional and temporal granularity. For this purpose, CRISP will ingest data from multiple heterogeneous sources, shedding light on the impact of response and intervention strategies in close to real-time. The result is a comprehensive and continuously updated data pool, which represents a key asset for semantic modeling and impact forecasting. CRISP will not only increase the transparency of crisis response and intervention processes but also capture how the resulting outcomes are being perceived by citizens and professional stakeholders.

Crisis Response Dashboard

The provision of a modular, highly scalable visual analytics engine is a central element of the CRISP project. The following screenshot shows example queries for “fire brigade” (blue) and “traffic accident” (yellow), using color coding to project the set of search results on a geographic map. A rapid drill-down mechanism enables users to quickly access regional coverage. The shown example limits the search to documents that reference “Weiz”, a town in the eastern part of Styria.
