Common issues with data use in disaster response
Large, cloud-based repositories of remote sensing data aren’t very useful if you don’t have a high-speed internet connection. In addition, adding data from the field is even more problematic without the right tools and software.
How small user experience issues can cause big problems
Slow or nonexistent 3G on phones, coordinating connections to a local-only network, combining paper map data from field workers–simple tasks on a normal day can be tedious or impossible when working in a disaster zone.
Potential personas to consider when designing systems
Personas are a simple way to always have the user front-of-mind while designing systems. This study provides some base user archetypes to help you navigate the spectrum of user you’d encounter in a disaster response scenario.
