A new contribution in the Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences (NHESS) journal, which is is published by the Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), portrays the highlights of the graphical user interface CCUI. This component has been developed in the DEWS project and is now continuously improved in the TRIDEC project.
Title: User interface prototype for geospatial early warning systems – a tsunami showcase
Abstract: The command and control unit's graphical user interface (GUI) is a central part of early warning systems (EWS) for man-made and natural hazards.
