Feasibility study of urban flood mapping using traffic signs for route optimization

  title={Feasibility study of urban flood mapping using traffic signs for route optimization},
  author={B. Kharazi and Diya Li and Zhe Zhang and Amir H. Behzadan},
Water events are the most frequent and costliest climate disasters around the world. In the U.S., an estimated 127 million people who live in coastal areas are at risk of substantial home damage from hurricanes or flooding. In flood emergency management, timely and effective spatial decision-making and intelligent routing depend on flood depth information at a fine spatiotemporal scale. In this paper, crowdsourcing is utilized to collect photos of submerged stop signs, and pair each photo with…

Fusing real-time congestion and air pollution in a multi-modal routing engine

The travel choices of citizens can be based on distance, time, exposure, emissions, etc., but the current route planning systems are based only on distance and time (i.e., shortest and fastest). This

Machine Learning Methods for Intrusive Detection of Wormhole Attack in Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET)

Based on the findings, the DT method's accuracy is 98.9% and higher than other methods, respectively, and in the next priority, SVM, KNN, CNN, LDA, and NB indicate high accuracy, respectively.

Implementation of Computer-Based Vision Technology to Consider Visual Form of Ceramic Mural Art

As one of the cultural forms of human beings, ceramic murals transcend the dimension of time and space and transcend the single cognition of materialism in the sense of purely material materials. The

Crowdsourced-based Deep Convolutional Networks for Urban Flood Depth Mapping

Successful flood recovery and evacuation require access to reliable flood depth information. Most existing flood mapping tools do not provide real-time flood maps of inundated streets in and around

Estimating Floodwater Depths from Flood Inundation Maps and Topography

Information on flood inundation extent is important for understanding societal exposure, water storage volumes, flood wave attenuation, future flood hazard, and other variables. A number of

A near real-time flood-mapping approach by integrating social media and post-event satellite imagery

Results indicate that, by adding the wetness information from post-event satellite observations, the proposed model could provide near real- time flood probability distribution with real-time social media, which is of great importance for emergency responders to quickly identify areas in need of immediate attention.

Enabling obstacle avoidance for Google maps' navigation service

This paper proposes and implements a method for performing shortest path calculations taking crowdsourced information, in the form of constraints and obstacles, into account on top of Google Maps and uses its routing service to calculate the shortest distance between two locations.

Flood water depth estimation — A survey

This paper provides a detailed compilation of the methods that can be used for the estimation of flood water depth and identifies the best method based on various attributes such as implementation methods, advantages, accuracy and cost.
