Environmental Disaster Management requires quick respounce times and an efficient resources use. An efficient answer is necessary, thanks to Alerting messages integrated by accurate georeferenced event informations.
The general scheme for rescue situation answer requires phenomenon knowledge, environmental monitoring, rapid Alerting services, quick intervention times and an optimum
resources use.
Police and emergencies management services need affordable knowledge of Disaster location, in order to efficiently coordinate rescue teams.
This is particularly critic when traditional infrastructures are not operational due to the emergency conditions themselves (i.e.
floodings, earthquakes, landslides, oils spilling, humanity intervention operations).
In this paper a contribution to the prevention and management of environmental disasters, by the analysis of parameters relative to the identification and georeferencing
of different tipologies of natural and anthropic disasters, is given.
The strutture of CAP (Common Alerting
Protocol) version 1.2, implemented by
Oasis, USA, giving the Alerting messages
structure that can be sent simultaneously to
different emergency management systems,
simplyfing the operations requested to the
teams involved into rescue operations, has
been herein analyzed.
Alert Messages trasmission Systems have
been also analyzed, included the possibility
to use EGNOS (European Geostationary
Navigation Overlay System) SIS (Signal In
The final aim of this research is the extraction
and real time visualization of georeferenced
informations on a mobile device
(PDA, mobile phone).
