The robust, loosely coupled network-based Web-service design and standard module-integrating protocol we propose serve as a general-purpose framework for information sharing supporting post-disaster rescue and restoration. Results of experiments confirmed the feasibility of our proposals. A noteworthy feature of our work is the simplicity of its elements and implementation.
