LEI WANG

Abstract


This paper examines current challenges for real time flood forecasting and develops a prototype Web-based Spatial Decision Support Services (WSDSS) for flood forecasting in the Oak Ridges Moraine (ORM) area, southern Ontario, Canada. This system integrates models, analytical tools, databases, graphical user interfaces, and spatial decision support services to help the public and decision makers to easily access flood and flood-threatened information. The development of Graphical User Interface (GUI), database, model base, spatial and graphic data display system and decision making support services are introduced.
