Floods are highly uncertain events, occurring in different regions, with varying prerequisites and intensities. A highly reliable flood disaster risk map can help reduce the impact of floods for flood management, disaster decreasing, and urbanization resilience. In flood risk estimation, the widely used analytic hierarchy process (AHP) usually adopts pixel as a basic unit, it cannot capture the similar threaten caused by neighborhood source flooding cells at sub-watershed scale. Thus, an…

Evaluating the weight sensitivity in AHP-based flood risk estimation models
The results suggest that the performance of the pixelbased AHP model fluctuates intensively given different definitions of judgment matrixes, while the performances of sub-watershed-based A HP models fluctuates considerably less than that of the pixels based model.


Urban Flood Vulnerability and Risk Mapping Using Integrated Multi-Parametric AHP and GIS: Methodological Overview and Case Study Assessment
This study aims at providing expertise for preparing public-based flood mapping and estimating flood risks in growing urban areas. To model and predict the magnitude of flood risk areas, an
GIS-based flood risk assessment in suburban areas: a case study of the Fangshan District, Beijing
Suburban areas have become rapid development zones during China’s current urbanization. Generally, these areas are also regional precipitation centers that are prone to flood disasters. Therefore, it
