GIS-based Simulation and Visualization of Oil Spill Spreading and SAR
Track: Maritime and Ports
Authors: Jinah Kim
We developed a simulation and visualization tool based on ArcGIS for predicting spread and movement of oil spill and search and rescue (SAR) to prevent oil spill and ship accident in the ocean, respectively. It consists of 5 parts: oceanic and atmospheric forecast model, model for drift and leeway, initial condition (time and location of occurrence and object/oil type) and real-time particle trajectories visualization. It has been used very helpfully to support ocean-related accidents in Korea.
