Abstract

In this paper, we aim to present a complete conceptual work flow for the assessment of user
generated geographic content, or volunteered geographic information (VGI), for the use in a crisis
management context. We provide an example on forest fires, but the modular workflow is adaptable
to other types of crisis events.
