The Hungarian National Association of Radio Distress-Signalling and Infocommunications (RSOE) operates Emergency and Disaster Information Service (EDIS) within the frame of its own website which has the objective to monitor and document all the events on the Earth which may cause disaster or emergency. Our service is using the speed and the data spectrum of the internet to gather information. We are monitoring and processing several foreign organisation’s data to get quick and certified information.
The EDIS website provides useful information regarding emergency situations and their prevention. Extraordinary events happening in the World are being monitored in 24 hours per day. All events processed by RSOE EDIS are displayed near real time – for the sake of international compatibility – according to the CAP protocol and REST-API interfasze on a secure website (https://hisz.rsoe.hu). To ensure clear transparency all events are categorized separately in the RSS directory (e.g. earthquake, fire, flood, landslide, nuclear event, tornado, vulcano).
The EDIS also contributes in dissemination of the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) in Hungary.
