Paper Abstract

This research designs and presents the development and application of the GAVOS algorithm. The algorithm is designed under the framework of visibility research, to calculate the probability of seeing from a ViewPoint to a TargetPoint, taking into account the uncertainty existing in the elevations of Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), that is used. The algorithm is a Decision Support tool, that will help specialists of visibility analysis, not to take “hard” decision, but to take “soft” probabilistic ones, accompanied by their confidence level. It can be embodied within a Decision Support System.
