Towards a Generic Data-Model for Cross-Media Communication During Disasters and Crises

submitted to the 3rd International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies for Disaster Management, ICT-DM 2016, 13-15 December 2016, Vienna, Austria

In this paper we present an approach to classify entities involved in cross-media crisis communication in a generic way. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the field, some foundations regarding the terminology involved are laid out. Based on this terminology, a faceted classification scheme is proposed, linking technologies and platforms. The framework covers traditional and Social Media platforms and allows for rapid positioning of media platforms as well as the identification of requirements regarding the technologies involved.
