Abstract—Infostructure is a new term that has been used across many disciplines and carries different meaning. This diversity leads to the blurring of the limits of infostructure of how it can be applied to suit a specific discipline. Varying definitions exists, and this paper aims to build a definition of infostructure that can be applied for disaster, specifically in the research of disaster management. In this paper, existing definitions of infostructure from various disciplines are analyzed to extract common elements and to establish the basic characteristics of how infostructure can be applied into disaster. Based on these existing definitions, this paper presents definition for infostructure for use in disaster.

Index Terms—information sharing, disaster management, coordination
