Ontology for Developing Web Sites for Natural Disaster Management: Methodology and Implementation
Recent natural disasters have highlighted the need for disaster preparedness, planning, and management. Hurricane Katrina demonstrated the usefulness of Web sites in dealing with natural disasters. However, little is known about the necessary contents and structures of Web-based information systems for natural disaster management. In this paper, we focus on devel- oping an ontology structure of elements for Web-based disaster management systems. Web elements are identified, following a grounded-theory approach, from an inventory of 6032 Web pages drawn from 100 disaster management Web sites. Selected semi- structured data representation approaches are used to organize the resulting ontology structure, which consists of 2094 Web ele- ments. The ontology structure is further coded into a Web-based system, allowing easy online access.

About IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON SYSTEMS, MAN, AND CYBERNETICS—PART A
The fields of systems engineering and human machine systems: systems engineering includes efforts that involve issue formulation, issue analysis and modeling, and decision making and issue interpretation at any of the lifecycle phases associated with the definition, development, and implementation of large systems. It also includes efforts that relate to systems management, systems engineering processes, and a variety of systems engineering methods such as optimization, decision making, modeling, and simulation. Human machine systems includes cognitive ergonomics, system test and evaluation, and human information processing concerns in systems and organizations.
