First responders need to access the right data at the right time to save lives. Accessing and integrating information from various sources is critical for first responders’ situational awareness during emergencies. The variety of data sources, including cell phones, mobile devices, cam-eras and deployed sensors, grows daily, but their value depends on the ability of users to detect their existence, know their state, locations, descriptions, software interfaces and access rules, and integrate the information they make available. All this is possible using standard data models and encodings implemented with Internet and Web technologies.
