Abstract [en]

This paper describes the results and differences between students and professionals who used a GPS based GIS as a collaborative tool in an experimental emergency response study. A total of 132 students, forming 22 groups and 108 professionals forming 18 groups were tested. Differences in both performance and behaviors between the groups have been identified. In the discussion we reflect on the importance to be aware of the participants’ background and behaviors while selecting the participants in an experimental study.
