Paper Abstract

A modified fire spread fast model combining CA framework with WangZhengfei's model is proposed for Emergency Rescue system.This model combines weather condition, terrain slope and vegetation type. It is suit to intricate topography and environmental southwestern fire-prone areas in China. A grid and vector polygon including the outermost fire fronts is obtained for GIS spatial inquiring, providing support for Aid in Decision Making. Simulation and experiments prove cellular automata feasible and effective for fast fire spread model, special in multi-factors restrained forest fire simulation.
