dc.description.abstractGeovisualization is a multidisciplinary field that develops domain-specific geospatial technologies for data exploration, analysis, and content communication. Nowadays, these novel geovisualizations are implemented for decision-making in emergency situations. The objective of this research is to develop and test the usefulness and usability of a three-dimensional desktop-based building model for fire related incident command processes. The development of the three-dimensional model incorporates theories of cartographic representation design and a structured user-centered design approach, i.e. requirements analysis, prototype design and usability testing. This research collects existing incident response practices by emergency responders, utilizes modern visualization techniques and compares the effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction of a three-dimensional geovisualization to a two-dimensional digital map.en_US
