we want to hereby inform you that the GIScience Research Group of
Heidelberg University is currently working on a new version of the
Disaster OpenRouteService. With this routing service being developed
specifically for disaster routing puposes, we would love to hereby get
your opinion regarding the provided features to enable adapting the
Disaster ORS to your needs in disaster response and management!
If you have already been using the Disaster ORS and would like to
support us, please fill the survey:
For all of you that have not used the service yet, that are however
interested in supporting us, find more information below:
The Disaster ORS is a special instance of the OpenRouteService (see
http://www.openrouteservice.org/), a OpenStreetMap based routing service
that allows you to calculate routes considering different forms of
transport, bypass areas and routing preferences.
The Disaster ORS was first implemented after the earthquake in Haiti
and again after the Nepal earthquakes 2015
and Ecuador eartquake 2016
The /OpenRouteService/ SOS-route profile that is integrated in the
Disaster ORS considers passable and impassable tagged ways and
dynamically adjusts the graph weights of OSM streets accordingly.
Additionally the Disaster ORS provides an Accessibility Analysis Service
for a given location, the possibility to export GPS tracks to be used
offline in mobile devices and the interactive Avoid Feature Area Tool
(in case areas are severely effected by debris and not accessible at
all). These features are thus potentially valuable for Search and Rescue
Thank you in advance and happy holidays,
on behalf of the GIScience Research Group
