ABSTRACT

Pedestrian Evacuation Analyst-Geographic Information Systems Software for Modeling Hazard Evacuation Potential   [open pdf - 3MB]

"This paper provides installation instructions for the Pedestrian Evacuation Analyst into Esri's ArcGIS desktop Advanced (ArcInfo) version and describes the steps to run the software and produce evacuation-time maps and population counts. Example maps shown in various figures throughout this report are based on pedestrian-evacuation analyses related to the local tsunami threat in the U.S. Pacific Northwest associated with a Cascadia subduction zone earthquake (Wood and Schmidtlein 2013). Tsunami-wave arrival time in south¬west Washington is estimated to be 20--30 minutes after initial ground shaking from the earthquake (Walsh and others, 2000)."
