Abstract: In humanitarian crisis situations, there is always more than one organization or agency involved in early warning, preparedness and response to the crisis. These participating actors usually need a shared computer-based framework to exchange information, monitor the status of the crisis, communicate and coordinate operations among them in order to make their collaborations better and make the right decisions at the right times. The aim of this paper is to present a web framework that has a modular architecture. This web framework has been realized by advanced web technologies and design patterns in software engineering. It is made up of diverse web modules and can be reusable and configurable to adapt with particular crisis contexts. The feasibility as well as the efficiency of this web framework is also demonstrated in the paper through real and complex crisis management scenarios.
