Simulations of natural phenomena
The modeling of natural phenomena using GIS tools
Many natural phenomena such as earthquakes, floods or volcanoes are serious risk to people living in vulnerable areas. For Poland the problem of flood prediction and monitoring is the most important. In order to increase safety within endangered areas a lot of activities are carried out. They are aimed at strengthening flood protection and make better decisions during urban planning.
In order to determine the flood zone the simulation of the flood phenomenon can be computed. It can be done based on the different kind of data like e.g. digital elevation models, topographic maps or data about existing flood defenses. After gathering these data they are analyzed using GIS (Geographic Information Systems) tools.At SATIM we offer advanced GIS analysis including flood modeling. The analysis can be done based on the ground-based measurements as well as using remote sensing data.
