Re: [humanitarian-ict] A poll on Disaster Management Systems

With a quick search I've added another 10, but there are probably 
plenty more out there.

A couple of big ones missed are the likes of e-Sponder, WebEOC, and e- 
Team that have seen some significant deployments in the US and 

I'm very interested in being able to build a functional record of what 
each system can provide, however, you'll struggle with many of the 
commercial systems to be able to undertake a complete analysis of all 
the functions that they provide.

If you want, I can put a request out on the IAEM list and I can 
probably get more detail on what systems are being used.

Cheers Gav
