Dynamic chaining of geographic information services (geo-services) is emerging as a viable framework for evolving flexible geo-information systems, integrating heterogeneous geographically dispersed geoinformation systems, and for providing on-demand access to geographic information in many application domains and location-based services. Alongside functionality, quality of service (QoS) is basic to successful chaining of dispaprate geo-services. This paper explores QoS provisioning in the context of geo-service chaining for disaster management. The paper presents a QoS model for disaster management and illustrates how userlevel QoS requirements can be supported in a QoS-aware geo-service architecture.
