The GIS-based decision support system for urban flooding emergency response

A. S. Chen, M. H. Hsu, C. J. Huang & W. Y. Lien
The study develops a GIS-based decision support system for emergency responses during floods. The system collects the near-real-time rainfall observation records to determine the flood-prone areas. The information increases the responding time for emergency managers to take adapted measures. The residents in the high inundation potential areas are warned and evacuated to shelters before disasters. The application strengthens the preparedness for mitigating the damages caused by floods.The study develops a GIS-based decision support system for...
