Web cellular automata: A forest fire modeling tool
Effective real-time decisions result in rapid responses to cases of disaster and emergency, such as forest fires, extreme weather condition, flooding, and oil spills. The presented integration of spatio-temporal CA-based models with GIS and the web is a valuable prototype tool that can be integratedinto a larger spatial decision support system for forest resources management.
