Abstract: Abstract. Decision-makers dealing with environmental issues are facing a number of serious challenges in situations of emergencies. In the case of extreme weather conditions or radiological emergencies, data sent by monitoring networks need not only to be processed automatically to produce maps but the information provided needs also to allow decision makers to assess associated uncertainties and easily delineate affected areas. Extreme events are furthermore usually characterized by local extreme values and sometimes anisotropies that are difficult to handle in a statistical point of view, especially at the early stages of an event when only little information is available and the means to contrast real events from technical anomalies are not always obvious. The use of INTAMAP, a web processing service for the automatic interpolation of measured point data, is here discussed from an end-user¿s point of view using some measurements of environmental radioactivity.
