Data Fusion for Flood Analysis and Decision Support

Keywords:
decision support, flood prevention and protection, data processing

Abstract:
The objective of the ANFAS project is to develop a Decision Support System for flood prevention and protection, integrating the most advanced techniques in data processing and management. When a flood is going to happen, decision makers have to decide what are the most appropriate reactions : evacuation of the population, reinforcement of dikes, etc. The ANFAS project will develop a tool to help decision makers in taking  decisions that will limit the flood damage.
