5 May 2017 Genetic algorithm for flood detection and evacuation route planning
Author Affiliations +
A genetic-type algorithm is presented that uses satellite geospatial data to determine the most probable path to safety for individuals in a disaster area, where a traditional routing system cannot be used. The algorithm uses geological features and disaster information to determine the shortest safe path. It predicts how a flood can change a landform over time and uses this data to predict alternate routes. It also predicts safe routes in rural locations where GPS/map-based routing data is unavailable or inaccurate. Reflectance and a supervised classification algorithm are used and the output is compared with RFPI and PCR-GLOBWB data.
