 Abstract—The Central Business District (CBD) of a city is the activity center of the city, typically locating the main commercial and cultural establishments, as well as acting as the center point of the city's transportation network. Flood risk assessment for a CBD is crucial for proper city planning and maintenance. In this study, we model the flood risk for the CBD of Tuguegarao City, which is located in northern Philippines. To accomplish this, we identified important flood-related…

Assessment of Flood Hazard Zonation Using Geographic Information System and Analytical Hierarchy Process: A Case Study of Tlawng River Watershed in Sairang, Mizoram, India
Flood occurs when the water inundates normally dry ground, which could happen in a variety of ways like excessive rainfall, overflowing of embankments, dams, rivers, snowmelt, and other factors.
Flood Modeling using Gis and LiDAR of Padada River in Southeastern Philippines
The result of the study has identified inundated areas and communities for a 24-hour 5, 25, and 100year return periods as well as flooded critical facilities in the flood plains.
The paper presents a case study integrating hydrological and hydraulic models with geographic information systems (GIS) to delimit flooded area caused by a rain of 100 years return period in the city
Internetworking flood disaster mitigation system based on remote sensing and mobile GIS
Abstract Flood verification and mitigation based on ground survey has been impeded by many factors. For instance, damage assessment exclusively by onsite expedition could be delayed by restricted

The impact of sound land use management to reduce runoff.
The study aimed to determine the impact of sound land use management to the runoff in Kabuntalan, Maguindanao in Tamontaka river basin. This was done through simulation and the comparison of the


GIS and RS Combined Analysis for Flood Prediction Mapping - A Case Study of Dhaka City Corporation, Bangladesh
2 Abstract- Flood is a type of hydro-meteorological phenomenon and it is very hazardous as it can cause devastating losses in property and human lives. Fast and unplanned development aggravates the
Detecting Flood Susceptible Areas Using GIS-based Analytic Hierarchy Process
Speedy growth of the world’s population has escalated both the frequency and severity of the natural catastrophes nowadays. Flood disaster has a very special place in natural catastrophes and its
Preliminary flood risk assessment: the case of Athens
A GIS-based multicriteria flood risk assessment methodology was developed and applied for the mapping of flood risk in urban areas and it is concluded that the results are a reasonable representation of actual flood risk, on the basis of their comparison with historical flood events.

Comparison of fuzzy and crisp analytic hierarchy process (AHP) methods for spatial multicriteria decision analysis in GIS
There are a number of decision making problems in which Geographical Information System (GIS) has employed to organize and facilitate the procedure of analyzing the problem. These GIS-based decisio
The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is a theory of measurement through pairwise comparisons and relies on the judgements of experts to derive priority scales that measure intangibles in relative terms.
Using the analytic hierarchy process in evaluating decision alternatives
Despite the fact that the method is able to evaluate the consistency of the judgments, the problem of acceptable weights still remains, so a method for the analysis of preferences is also discussed in the paper.
Introducing probabilistic models for redundant system reliability
In this paper, probabilistic models for repairable redundant network flow systems have been developed to analyze the impact of reliability measures on system performance. Explicit expressions for
