THEMIS is an Intelligent System designed to support Disaster Management in the context of disaster relief operations, contributing to reduce the decision-making burden typical of these stressful operational scenarios,
which is exacerbated by the big volumes of information, often affected by uncertainty.

The goal of the THEMIS project was to create a distributed system that supports: the disaster scenario information gathering and updating, by reconnaissance and response teams using mobile devices; the disaster managers, through incidents analysis and response priority advice, using desktop devices; the information sharing and the flow of georeferenced data communications between system users concerning response tasking and responders’ and incidents’ status; and the response preparedness through simulations functionalities.
Particularly regarding the support to response teams’ actions, the mobile devices offer navigation aids based on maps and augmented reality.
