Disaster Cluster: Long term sustainability
Long term sustainability is crucial to capabilities supporting and enabling disaster lifecycle activities. The overarching objective of the ESIP Disaster Cluster is to facilitate connections and coordinate efforts among data providers, managers and developers of disaster response systems and tools, and end-user communities within ESIP. This session will include report of the working group's activities, presentations that highlight use cases and Disasters & Risk Management (DRM) information architecture, as well as planning for future activities.
Since the January ESIP meeting, the Disasters Cluster has discussed elements of a disasters 'information architecture', especially at the joint ESIP/CEOS WGISS session in April. These topics support the goal of identifying and infusing new Earth observation capabilities (products and services) into end user disaster management systems. This session will look at existing efforts addressing disasters information that we might leverage in discussing and determining the cluster's action plan.

What are the event triggers.
Data albums, social media, and other things all feed into this system
System offers a lot of different types of information, summary analytics, summary analytics, and more.
Trying to get together use cases.
Need terminology, classification, relationship
Develop a process to capture end user needs
-describe use cases
-interview/survey to identify information, systems in use
-capture information content
--vocabulary, glossary, unstructured and structured information
Share in ESIP wiki
-possible use USGIN Information Exchange spreadsheet or other consistent format
-Examine information for patterns
Wish list for disaster products..(long)
What is the goal? Let’s decide on the next telecom.
Some members that landslide and drought data that is on the wish list.
Need to put disaster wish list on the wiki and get feedback from membership.
