-**Succinct Data** is a concept that supplements the [[Rhizome]] device-to-device file replication service (slow data mule) with a fast, expensive, low volume channel like satellite messaging, to rapidly transmit the crucial elements of information collected by field disaster response teams back to headquarters and assemble it into a near-real-time situational display (eg, a map display with colour-coded pins for each field report).+**Succinct Data** is a concept that supplements the [[Rhizome]] device-to-device file replication service (slow, high-volume data mule) with a fast, expensive, low volume channel like satellite messaging, to rapidly transmit the crucial elements of information collected by field disaster response teams back to headquarters and assemble it into a near-real-time situational display (eg, a map display with colour-coded pins for each field report).

-Collected forms were sent to HQ via [[Rhizome]], which depended on adequate data exchange between devices in the field and the EOC, and could take hours or even days to deliver form instances, depending on the movement and battery endurance of field personnel.  The succinct channel was a satellite [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_Message_Service|SMS text]] service provided by the [[http://www.inreachdelorme.com/|DeLorme inReach]] ground terminal, which would carry only [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Succinct_data_structure|succinct data]] with the essential components of the form instance, leaving heavy data like images to [[Rhizome]].+Entered forms were sent to HQ via [[Rhizome]], which depended on adequate data exchange between devices in the field and the EOC, and could take hours or even days to deliver form instances, depending on the movement and battery endurance of field personnel.  The succinct channel was a satellite [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_Message_Service|SMS text]] service provided by the [[http://www.inreachdelorme.com/|DeLorme inReach]] ground terminal, which would carry only [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Succinct_data_structure|succinct data]] with the essential components of the form instance, leaving heavy data like images to [[Rhizome]].
