Authors: Izza Anwer

This paper presents a new integrated method that focuses on quantitative measure of qualitative data for small sample size that consists of rich and high profiled data sources such as experts (heads) of Intelligent transport system (ITS) technologies, transport and earthquake management institutions. The details of the newly developed method and its application by considering a case-study from developing country is presented. The results are in the form of identified factors that are limiting the effectiveness of Information communication flow through Intelligent transport system technologies in transport-earthquake (a term introduced by the author of this study) management. The identified factors highlight information communication problems inter and intra departments, among different stakeholders and uneven ratio of ITS technology and transport-earthquake affected and managers. The model worked well and can be applied in many ways such as other case-studies and types of disasters.
