Abstract:

This paper deals with information availability related to crisis management, an area that has become a prioritized national and international concern. The paper looks into two different scenarios with a view to identify some shortcomings and possibilities inherent in a national information infrastructure. By fairly simple means it is possible to obtain significant improvement of data availability, which in turn will give a substantial contribution to improved emergency preparedness through the availability of a national crisis information grid. A network centric solution is suggested, where the limitations inherent in todays information grid are overcome, and where information is dynamically made available as required.
