New York, November 19th 2013
The ADMP project concept will be presented to a New York audience this Tuesday November 19th during the Next Generation Public Safety Symposium. The platform will facilitate informed decision-making by communicating the information, via various channels and at appropriate levels of detail, to the wide spectrum of people involved in making emergency decisions – from the central coordinating agencies that are charged with directing activities, to on-ground emergency services personnel, through to the local community.
The ADMP will draw on vast amounts of geo-spatial and infrastructure information from multiple data sets (including many sets already in existence), bring these together, facilitate discovery and then integrate and analyse the data to create real-time, practical information streams on disaster events and to develop simulation and optimisation models.
The first cut of capabilities of the ADMP will be demonstrated at this symposium along with presentations from groups such as the UN Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM), Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO), the World Bank, and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).
The symposium will give a broad overview of the importance of disaster management research, will feature talks on the management of disasters for public safety around the world, and will feature a disaster management platform in practice. In particular, the topics of global collaboration, governance, communications, and open standards within the context of disaster management will be discussed.
The ADMP project presents an opportunity for researchers and key industry players to work in close collaboration with the ADMP framework. The platform is designed to facilitate interaction, discussion and cooperation across both local and international industries. In order to successfully achieve this seamless platform, input from different stakeholders across the world is welcomed.
