Build and play out scenarios on a 3D map. Resolve and train for crucial tasks with our Decision Support System
We have used CORE to develop the Decision Support System (DSS), for preparedness and crisis training. DSS was created in collaboration with Hamar Municipality, Inland University of Applied Sciences, and as a part of the INTERREG-project CriseIT. Using the DSS has many benefits.
Firstly, in the DSS, the environment is a 3D map of the world. The map is searchable for any location. It is also scalable from an overview image to a full-scale rendition, of any place on the planet. In addition, users can place objects, markings, and editable text boxes on the map. This lets the user recreate situational images, either for informing about real conditions or to simulate situations and propose solutions.
Secondly, using CORE’s save/load-system, users can run large scale exercises. This is especially great for setting up complex training exercises. Here participants make choices and are presented with the consequences of these choices. With the save/load-system, the DSS is a simple and flexible application for any training needs.
Finally, users can access information boards with defined areas of responsibility. Through API’s the application can gather and visualize data from external sources like YR.no or Google Traffic. This definitely gives any exercise a dimension of reality where the users can, for example, monitor traffic load and road axes in real-time, as well as visualizing the effect wind direction has on smoke development.
