cal. Technology can play a significant role to enable information sharing between the various participants during CHEs. This thesis documents the development of a proof of concept that supports this. Current reports and user feedback were analyzed to determine requirements for a field-based system that could enhance the flow of information. The developmental process is presented including, requirements generation, group structure and information sharing, collaborative environments and the advantages of the virtual space. Based on a fictional relief operation, a web application was constructed and designated the Relief Operations Coordination Center (ROCC). Built on COTS technology and combined with commercially available collaboration tools, this application showcases the various uses of today's technology and how it can be used to facilitate information sharing during CHEs.
