Emergency management information system is one kind of information systems that concentrates its functions on assisting emergency response tasks with the integration of computer science and geographical information science technologies. This paper proposes and demonstrates the functions of a prototype of the emergency management information system, including the system architecture, data sources, database design and other components. Then the paper mainly introduces the plotting methods of the prototype and gives several different plotting examples dealing with the emergent events. The achievements of the research work can be applied to build emergency management information systems for different purposes in different governmental levels. The system can greatly help the emergency management agencies to deal with many types of emergent events and reduce the loss of life and property.
