Abstract: Validation is an emerging topic in the field of geospatial information for emergency response. In the framework of GMES initiative (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security), SAFER project (Services and Applications For Emergency Response) seeks to implement and validate the preoperational versions of Emergency Response Core Services. In that context, a dedicated effort has been made on the development and implementation of a comprehensive, product-oriented validation protocol tailored to crisis maps and datasets. This paper presents the approach for validation of crisis maps and its application in the context of rapid mapping of forest fires in Corsica during summer 2009. It also discusses the main challenges and the critical aspects of validation of geospatial information in emergency response services.
