Bloggers To Help Monitor Emergency Situations

Last updated on Saturday, March 10, 2007

(BLOOMINGTON) - A new blogging system could aid communicating and responding to disasters.

Indiana University Assistant Professor of Informatics David Wild has helped create the Bloomington Emergency Collaborative Information System, a research project in which bloggers monitor communication sources such as the internet, television and two-way radio traffic and then contact authorities.

More information about the project is available at www.becis.org
