ABSTRACT

The paper describes the deployment of an open-source Crismapp platform. It is a WebGIS 2.0-based solution designed primarily for crisis management purposes. As part of a cooperation with the University of Bergen, Crismapp was implemented for the purposes of monitoring the earthquake in the Norwegian region within the European-wide observation network EPOS. HTML5-based application reflects the WebGIS 2.0 principle and uses as much as possible open tools: the Leaflet map library and GeoJSON data format. Besides the visualization client, it has a complete administration (back-end). The paper introduces students to the priorities of the Crismapp platform, including a demonstration of its flexibility in a particular deployment for viewing the earthquake in Norway. Moreover, paper handles with the term “WebGIS 2.0“. From a stylistic point of view, the WebGIS 2.0 concept combines two separate ideas, WebGIS and Web 2.0. From a technological point of view this concept combines the latest methods in the GIT context and, in principle, is based on the methods of service-oriented architecture and the Internet as a platform, and Cloud Computing.

Keywords: crisis mapping, Crismapp, earthquakes, WebGIS 2.0
