CCC addressed

Scope, rationale, context: general description. Precise here if this technology is currently use (eg. company name or contact info) The management of emergencies is hardly ever imaginable without proper information support. This information support must be consistent across all phases of emergencies, during the planning and preparation phase, during life saving and rescue operation and also during the recovery phase. The web services enable uniform a standardized publishing of the data and algorithms for various applications. Owing to this fact, the data and algorithms published through the web services are available via standard interface for all computer applications regardless on which phase of the emergencies they are focused. The web services can be also easily joined together to form large information systems. This contribution demonstrates the use of Python web application framework Django as a tool for publication of data and algorithms in the form of web services. As a simple demonstration of the Django and web services capability was chosen the analysis of the quadratic equation. The more sophisticated example, showing the web services capability in the consequence with emergencies, is illustrated with web service providing endangered areas according to the Emergency Response Guidebook in the connection with hazardous material release.
