Boeing Mashup using IBM Mashup Center
David Barnes released a new You Tubevideo which shows how Boeing used IBM Mashup Center to create a emergency response situational application. Boeing wanted to utilize existing data sources to improve rapid response capabilities for the FAA. With assistance from IBM's jStart team, Boeing was able to show the FAA a "Usable Airport Search Mashup". This mashup application could be used to enable government officials, in response to local or widespread emergency, to quickly identify the nearest airport that can safely handle an incoming aircraft based on aircraft’s performance characteristics such as Airport location, Airport status, Runway length , and Local weather. All this information is spread out among different government agencies, government contractors, as well as from other companies. This Boeing Mashup shows how all this information can come together to create a intergrated dashboard for an emergercy responder.
