Abstract

Research on urban storm surge disaster contingency plans generation for personnel evacuation has become an important part of the research in the area of marine disaster prevention and reduction strategy. This paper fits in the research area by introducing the development of a software system that facilitates personnel evacuations during an urban storm surge disaster. The system uses a linear programming model and simplex algorithm and is implemented with ArcGIS and C #. Post development experiments have shown it to be efficient in automatically calculating the affected area, the number of personnel to be evacuated and screening the settlement points of safety. In addition, an optimization calculation generates the maximum number of personnel to be allocated to the safety points as well as the best evacuation routes. The system is simple to operate with a high degree of visualization.
