Enabling Open Access For Flood Risk Preparedness

  1. 1. Enabling Open Access for Flood Risk Preparedness Terence van Zyl, et.al. Presented by: Graeme McFerren
  2. 2. Content <ul><li>Introduction
  3. 3. Risk Preparedness and the Sensor Web
  4. 4. The Requirements
  5. 5. Architecture for and Open Risk System
  6. 6. Continued Research </li></ul>Content
  7. 7. Informal Settlements <ul><li>A challenge for the emerging economy
  8. 8. Development are characterised by: </li><ul><li>Rapid Changes, (Expansion and contraction)
  9. 9. Unstructured
  10. 10. Unplanned </li></ul></ul>Introduction
  11. 11. Floods in Africa <ul><li>SA 927, 710 people affected since October 2007
  12. 12. The effects go beyond death and extend to quality of life </li></ul>Introduction
  13. 13. Flood Preparedness <ul><li>Detect Informal Settlements
  14. 14. Acquire 50/100 year flood lines
  15. 15. “Continuous” analyses to raise an alert when they coincide with flood lines </li></ul>Floods Preparedness
  16. 16. The Sensor Web “ An open complex adaptive system organised as a network of open sensor resources, which pervades the internet and provides external access to sensor resources. By open sensor resources, we include any open system, including sensor networks that are a source of sensor data or sensor meta-data (van Zyl, Simonis, and Mcferren, 2008).” The Sensor Web
  17. 17. The Sensor Web
  18. 18. The Use Cases Requirements
  19. 19. Non-Functional Requirements <ul><li>The system should be open </li><ul><li>Provide open access to data
  20. 20. Standards such as OGC </li></ul><li>The system should be web based </li><ul><li>Increased system accessibility </li></ul><li>The system should be adaptive </li><ul><li>Respond to changes in environment </li></ul></ul>Requirements
  21. 21. Architecture <ul><li>Data View </li><ul><li>Flood Lines
  22. 22. Informal Settlements </li></ul><li>Services View </li><ul><li>Informal Settlement SOS, SPS
  23. 23. Flood-lines SOS
  24. 24. Risk SOS and SAS </li></ul></ul>Architecture
  25. 25. GEOSS The System of Systems Approach Where a system is a collection of components Architecture
  26. 26. Continued Research <ul><li>Implementation in progress
  27. 27. Mechanism to automatically and continuously arrive at flood-lines using DEM and GRID
  28. 28. Attaining community buy in – untrusted technologies </li></ul>Continued Research
