Title: Grand Challenge


Overwhelmed by the scale of the disaster, city of Himark officials are looking for help to build a more complete understanding of the situation on the ground. They have access to multiple data sources, but each on its own is an incomplete view into the situation. Fuse the data in the mini challenges to give officials a fuller situational awareness than is possible with any individual data sources. Officials are especially interested in understanding how the uncertainty in each source interacts with the others. Can sources reinforce or refute findings in other sources? Does combining sources bring the situation into clearer view or just increase confusion? The citizens of St. Himark are trying to assist their government by providing more information than official channels would be able to on their own, but you must help fuse those sources into a form that allows officials to do their job as efficiently and with the greatest impact possible.
