The key to efficient operations is not only the gathering of accurate information, but also its adequate presentation and dissemination that contributes to enhance a collective situational awareness.Especially during USAR operations, the collection and presentation of uncertain information from various sources is challenging. A Decision Support System called FRIEDAA has therefore been developed that additionally has the capability to fuse uncertain information about positive and negative results of search activities.

A decision support system for debris-flow hazard mitigation in towns based on numerical simulation: a case study at Dongchuan, Yunnan Province.
he OzCT geotagger has been recently deployed in a trial system of the OzCrisisTracker application.The best method to evaluate the effectiveness of automated or semi-automated geotagging processes—such as identifying geo/non-geo references, specifying the geographic focus in the content and disambiguation of the results of the geo references—is to compare the results with manual human geotagging.
