Live Show: Geo-Web services in flood situation (combined with a shipping accident)

Jack, a Fire Brigade Officer will show to you (in real-time) how Geo-Web services provide information on demand in a crisis situation. The crisis is situated near Nijmegen on the river Waal, where floods due to abundant rain and melting snow coincide with heavy storm. Four crisis centers communicate using Geo-Web services provided by a several governmental organisations. The result is an effective, efficient information sharing and quick response to the disaster 'nearly' developing. The performance and impact of live geo-web services is demonstrated in 9 stages. Cooperation and information sharing boosts information control.
