We present a novel visual analytics system and multimedia enabled mobile application that allows emergency management (EM) personnel access to timely and relevant disaster situation information. The system is able to semantically integrate text-based emergency management disaster situation reports with related disaster imagery taken in the field by EM responders and community residents. In addition, through an intuitive and seamless Apple iPad application, users are able to interact with the system in diverse places and conditions and thus provide a more effective response. The system is demonstrated via its iPad application which aims at providing relevant and actionable information.
