Abstract
The 21st century is facing a paradigm shift in disaster risk mitigation and the importance of crowd-tasking systems is rising. This paper presents a concept to estimate the benefits of crowdtasking systems in the context of high impact, low probability incidents in a coastal region with more than 1.7 million inhabitants.
