Abstract

This study attempts to simulate people flow before and after the flooding in the West Japan heavy rain on July 2018, using a mobile GPS (global positioning system) data. We focus on Mabi-Cho, Kurashiki-City, which is one of the most damaged area on the flood disaster. A Monte Carlo simulation approach is introduced to generate micro-scale people's evacuation flows from spatially sparse GPS information. The result shows that GPS data effectively simulate people flow after flooding even if the simulation approach is very simple, and how people flow changed before and after the disaster.
