Guest Editors' Introduction: Cloud-Based Smart Evacuation Systems for Emergency Management

Smart evacuation systems must extract meaningful information from multiple sources in real time, while avoiding unnecessary data transmission or storage. Cloud computing is a natural fit for deploying such systems; however, transformational techniques for managing the resulting big data are still needed. Read the introduction to the November 2014 special issue here.
