Abstract

Disaster management information systems (DMIS) can help mitigate damages caused by natural hazards. For example, as an early warning system, it should automatically generate and disseminate warnings to people at risk. In case of disaster, DMIS should support relief teams with up-to-date information, allowing for better coordination and more efficient help. In addition, DMIS could facilitate emergency communication. It should also serve as a data source for scientists. This could be the basis for further analyses allowing improvement of reactions to future events.

One problem with DMIS is that it may be partially destroyed during an event. This can lead to some functional loss resulting in less efficient disaster management. Integrating decentralised, self-organising, wireless sensor networks (WSN) is a promising approach to extend the capabilities of DMIS. WSN are expected to hold up functionality in case of partial destruction and thus may lead to a better preparation for disasters and mitigation of damages.

Technologies for DMIS, WSN, and its integration are subject to ongoing research. Our goal is to apply a model-driven approach to the development of such technologies. In this paper, we do not treat the technologies itself. Instead, we focus on challenges for the model-driven approach.
