INSITU: Sharing incident and threat information for common situational understanding Emergency responders lack support to effectively share information and establish a common operational picture (COP), for reaching sharedsituational understanding of threats and incidents. The INSITU project will address these challenges by developing systematic support for enhanced situational understanding. Emergency responders lack support to effectively share information and establish a common operational picture (COP), for reaching shared situational understanding of threats and incidents. This challenge is multifaceted: lack of a systematic overview of information elements that are critical to share in different crisis scenarios; no common map interface in place using standard symbols; different terminologies used across disciplines, resulting in possible communication problems in multi-agency collaboration The INSITU project will address these challenges by developing systematic support for enhanced situational understanding. The solution will provide a common map interface, integrating harmonisation of terminology and collaboration support for information sharing and synthesis. The enhanced COP will also support evaluation and learning from exercises and incidents.
