Introduction and User Story

SAMBRO Mobile Application


The app is supposed to be a mobile app to issue alerts for several hazards to be included into SAMBRO/Sahana.

The app will complement the web based GUIs for issuing alerts to enable a mobile solution even working in areas with weak internet connectivity.

An existing similar solution is mobile4D, a bi-directional hazard reporting and alerting tool developed at the Capacity Lab at the University of Bremen.

Tip: Engage these stakeholders in the development of your BluePrint.

User Stories

An authorized user finds himself in a situation where he/she is in the need to issue an alert, but does not have access to a computer or/and a sufficiently stable internet connection. The user can now use the app and fill in the data via a structured interface. After confirming the data, the app takes over and sends the data to the Sahana server as soon as internet connection is available again without the user having to take care of it. (Alternatively, the app uses SMS to send the data. This is transparent to the user.)

Step 1. Test the current SAMBRO GUIs for its responsiveness to mobile handhelds. If necessary suggest some GUI tweaks to harmonize the desktop version with the mobile screens.

Step 2. Design hazard specific alert authoring and issuing GUIs. For example, Alerting Authorities, in a local area (Barangay, Gramaniladari, Thaluk, etc) do not need the full CAP message but a few attributes like the area and water level. We will target on delivering 3-5 mobile GUIs for Landslide, Flood, Accident,

Step 3. Develop the requirements/design for using the concept of Pictographs in Alerting and other features such as a wake up function to sound an Audible Alarm etc. I think we should do the same with the web GUI such that we can set a siren audio to sound for a specific warning_priority threshold.

We may have to look for funding outside of the ESCAP project for step 3.
