Abstract

This paper describes one research line carried out by the Public University of Navarra in collaboration with the Spanish Red Cross with an interdisciplinary team of volunteers, students, technicians and lecturers whose main aim is to create low cost information systems, adaptive to irregular infrastructures and dispersed locations for emergency response purposes. The features of such systems require a consolidation of the information at several levels and some times among different organizations. They require as well other features like platform independence, low bandwidth information flow and feedback from the end users in order to optimize the process to acquire and display information. The final aim is to improve the data capture and the needed interpretation of such data in order to help within one Emergency response situation. One specific application has been implemented for the management of the incidences of the bull-running and has been used and tested during the “Fiestas of San Fermin” in Pamplona from the 7th to the 14th of July 2009.
