Real-Time Tracking

See also Victim Tracking and Tracing.

This is proposed to be done using the SOS Layer.

Model

Storing different positions of objects (and some other dynamic information) related to time into the database (first/past/current/forecasted positions)

View

Display position tracks of objects or object groups on maps, additionally indicate or link other data (such as speed and course, or even non-discrete such as triage/recovery status, member count in groups, free-text, wiki-text, or other URL)

Backend

Take up position data of the objects in real time and update the database. This may be multiple controllers

Client system

Capture and send real-time position/object data to the backend (e.g. from a mobile phone), this could happen via HTTP, URL (RESTlike controller), SMS, E-Mail, file transfer (CSV or XML), or other/multiple methods - but should be as easy, portable and reliable as possible.
