Abstract

The main goal of the research project FLOREON+ (FLOod REcognition On the Net) is a development of prototypal open modular system of environmental risks modeling and simulation which is based on modern internet technologies and platform independency. The system is running in the operative way nowadays. Hydrological issues such as floods are complimented by other environmental analyses and models. These models involve water quality, air quality, erosion and ecological models. The final product of the project is going to be the system offering an online communicational man-machine interface and providing various types of products for decision support. The project results should help to simplify the process of crisis management and increase its operability and effectiveness. The main scopes of modeling and simulation are flood risk, transportation risk and water and air pollution risks. Incorporation of geographic information systems (GIS) is a logical step because numerical models work with geospatial data and effective handling of such data is a crucial factor of efficiency of the whole system. Keywords: FLOREON+, hydrologic modeling, modular system, GIS.
