Project background

The technique for verification of messages about the threat of emergencies is needed to radically improve the efficiency and reliability of the analysis of existing and newly received information from a variety of sources (especially spatial data) aimed at identifying and preventing threats of emergency situations of man-made and natural character.

Identification of the threat by the volunteer’s community must undergo the verification process to reduce the impact of “social noise” on the work of the state structures responsible for the emergency threat prevention. The development of the method of messages verification about the threat of emergencies is aimed at solving this problem.

Most significant achievements

European Center for New Technologies of Risk Management - Russian Federation :
In 2018, the ECNTRM reported on the e-mail form for the Internet portal, the message definition format and logical control and the post confirmation mechanism:
  • The format is necessary for the radical increase in the efficiency and reliability of the information analysis available and coming from various sources (primarily spatial data) in order to identify and prevent threats of manmade and natural disasters.
  • The threats identified by the volunteer community must go through the verification process to reduce the impact of "social noise" on the work of the government agencies involved in preventing emergencies. To solve this problem it is necessary to develop techniques for the verification of reports on the emergency threat.
  • The method should be designed to determine and increase the reliability of reports about the threat of emergencies received from those registered on the Web portal of the System’s collective spatial data users. It will allow for limiting the sequence of operations and methods for obtaining and analysing information to determine the authenticity of the messages about the threat of emergency situations of manmade and natural character.
