In collaboration with IBM Research Australia, we succeeded in generating maps of wildfire community impact through Monte Carlo simulation on the IBM Evacuation Planner (EVA). The maps are utilized to optimize sensor placement by a case study in the Mount Dandenong area. Kent submitted an abstract about this work to Australian and New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference (ANZDMC). A journal article “Optimizing spatial organization of sensor networks to minimize wildfire impact” was produced by David, Peter, Mahathir, and Kent. The paper was submitted to the journal Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation.
