     8Common Alerting Protocol defines a data format for sending out alerts (and re-relaying) over various broadcasting channels. This project aims to implement core CAP features into Eden and provide usable UI elements for generating CAP alerts by authorized personnel.The module will facilitate the publishing and relaying of alerts and warning as well as offer subscribers means to receive such warnings and alerts. Moreover, the module will provide a common operating picture of the published alerts for improving situational-awareness. The module aims to provide tools, mainly for National Disaster Management Organizations, for managing Multi-agency situational-awareness with capabilities for all-hazard all-media warning/alerting.

    10 A Sahana Eden instance that has subscribed to available broadcasters will (e.g. USGS or GDACS CAP feeds) then recieve the alert. Thereafter, an authorized Sahana Eden user can amend the content and relay that message to recipients registered in the Sahana Eden instance. They could be human subscribers or other systems linked to Sahana Eden, thus alerting them of an imminent tsunami, for example.
     10The self-contained product, arising from these developments, will be coined as the CAP-enabled Sahana Alerting and Messaging Broker (abbreviated as "SAMBRO"). One aspect of SAMBRO is for implementers to subscribe to available CAP feeds such as USGS or GDACS, then work in the capacity of an aggregator to present those CAP messages in the common operating picture based on spatial and temporal dimensions. Authorized SAMBRO user can choose to amend those CAP messages, received through the feeds, to relay them to the subscribers registered in the SAMBRO. content and relay that message to recipients registered in the Sahana Eden instance. They could be human subscribers or other systems linked to Sahana Eden, thus alerting them of an imminent tsunami, for example.

    1212Similarly, a manually recorded landslide can be broadcast by an Eden server which will be sent out to the traffic control system, for example, which will allow it to automatically determine a custom traffic routing.
