RELIEF 12-01 Camp Roberts Report (November 2011)
Dr. Linton Wells II, John Crowley, Samuel Bendett
The ninth meeting of the Research and Experimentation for Local and International First Responders (RELIEF) experiments took place from 2-5 November 2011 at Camp Roberts in Paso Robles, CA. Over 40 people from 17 organizations in the disaster response community participated in 10 planned experiments. Most work centered on a core problem in humanitarian assistance/disaster response operations: how to fuse data collected from crowdsourcing, maps, and sensors into a sense of shared situational awareness across organizations.
